    There are seven chics. Did not post our obvious rooster. Pretty sure the darker easter egger is a roo. Pea comb. Dark orange now but noone else has that color. Everybody else still completely yellow.

    Thanks for your help.

    This bird may be a cockerel. Can we get a frontal comb shot, and a profile body pic?

    I'm thinking cockerel from this pic, not sure which comb pic goes with it though.

    First bird is male.
    Second bird....I'm just not positive. Looks like 3 rows on that comb, and the redder shading on the wings is male. But, that shading is pretty subtle and the comb has zero color. EE boys are not usually shy about that! I'm hoping for you it's a pullet.
