    Never mind the random brabanter, although I doI think all of my straight runs are roos.. Any help would be great. Also a random brabanter I don't know how to sex either.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Correct. All Easter Eggers pictured are male. All have very obvious male specific feathering.

    ****. What about the brabanters? Is there a way to tell? They are about maybe a week younger than the EEs.

    Compare the back feathering. Pullets have broad, round back feathers. Cockerels have long, thin, pointed back feathers.

    I'm sorry, but all I could think when I saw this one was, "Photo bomb!" That look! [​IMG]

    Lol, the brabanters are wonderful and funny. And they love the boxes but kick out the hay all the time.
