    Hi everyone!

    First time chicken owner and poster :) We brought our chicks home on April 19th. We got them from the local feed store, so they were straight run. We got 4 Australorps and 4 Easter Eggers. We are pretty sure all the Australorps are Pullets, but 2 of the Easter Eggers have me guessing. I've scrolled through all the pics and I'm still not sure.

    I'd love to hear your opinions!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you with us!

    Please post standing side pics in natural lighting - no flash. That way we can accurately see everything. :)

    The deep red patches on the shoulders and wings indicate cockerel here is an example on my Easter Egger cockerel

    Thanks everyone! I'm not disappointed. I thought he was, but I needed an expert opinion :)
