    It's looking like most of my hatch are roo's. [​IMG] They are 20 weeks old this week. Any gender/breed help would be appreciated. I was told by the person who gave us the eggs, they aren't sure but think the white ones are white Ameraucana's. Thank you.

    Believe this is the epitome off a rooster but just want to double check.

    Forgot to mention, the white ones came from light blue/green eggs and the others came from light brown eggs.

    It's really hard to tell on the whites but if you look at the ends of neck (hackle) feathers, you should be able to tell if the feathers are pointed or rounded. Same goes for the saddle feathers (across the back and right in front of the tail). Pointy=cockerel, rounded=pullet. Based on what I can see, my guesses are pullet, cockerel, pullet, pullet, cockerel. They are all lovely Easter Eggers and your pullets should be getting ready to lay soon.

    The second one and last one are definite roosters.


    They're all Easter Eggers.
