    I have 5 easter eggers. I think maybe 2 are hens and 3 are roosters. they are maybe a month old. how can you tell? 3 of them have pretty long tails. 1 looks like it has no tail at all and one has a short tail. any comments please. thanks

    I need photos to make a guess. Tail length at this age, though, is not a major factor in determining the sex of a bird. However, chicks who feather slower than others (unless that is just what their breed is like), often turn out to be males.

    Definitely post some pic's and we can at least make an educated guess! [​IMG]
