    I am at the 6 weeks mark and the family is in the coop in the garage until the weather gets above freezing here.

    I had ordered hatchery sexed females and know sometimes mistakes happen. The one I question most is the brown and black Easter Egger.

    What do you think? I'll post more pics of hopefully her and the others later.

    Thoughts and input appreciated.

    That is typical pullet coloring. I vote pullet also.

    Thinking on colors what do you think of Cluck?

    I had been thinking because of the feathers and the smaller size that it was a she. Same age and also an EE.

    Girl or boy?

    Comb shot isn't that clear. If you see any reddish/rust colored feathers coming in by wings, that would indicate a rooster.

    That color could swing both ways. My mother has a hen like her, but I've mostly seen roos that color. A comb picture would be needed for any good guesses.

    First is definitely a pullet. The white bird, however, will be a mystery until it matures more. White and black EEs have a tendency to be male, but it isn't a coloration exclusive to males.

    Question: Was your white and black bird pale as a chick, or did it have dark markings? Do you have pictures of it younger than a week?

    First one a pullet. I can't tell much of the white.

    The white is a pullet, looks like my black and white EE girls. At that age, the black and white coloration for males becomes really different from the females.

    Here is Cluck Norris at just a couple days old. Has always been on the light side with a few markings.

    Comb doesn't really have any color.

    Also has always perked up when I'm around but probably because I had the treats.
