    Here are my two Easter Eggers. They are 6 weeks old. Pullets or roos?????

    "Gizmo" is the more red colored one with the black head with the single comb. "Stripe" is the more orange colored one with the rose comb. Both of their combs are just starting to turn pink at the base. Let me know what you think. Thank you for taking time to help. Maybe soon I can stop obsessing about it. [​IMG]

    Gizmo is a rooster. The other one looks to be a pullet at this point.

    are you sure they are EE's? I don't see any muffs, green legs, or pea combs... [​IMG]

    Yup, They are Easter Eggers. Stripe has a small pea comb but Gizmo has a single comb. Weird cause they are from the same Mom and Dad. I just don't know if they are pullets or roos.

    EE's are Mixes, so they can have a variety of combs, may or may not have beards and or muffs, and don't always have green legs. I have two that couldn't look more different-one with a beard and muffs, pea green legs and a pea comb (and she's solid white) while the other lacks a beard and muffs completely and has a different comb (idk what kind) and has greyish-green legs.

    Ya, I'm clear them being easter eggers. Just wondering if they are pullets or roos.

    Thanks
