    Can anyone tell me hens or roos in these pictures? They are all 10 weeks and they are easter eggers and banties

    I think they would be crowing already if they are 10 weeks old. My easter egger looked a lot like the ones in your photos at 10 weeks. In a week or two their muff feathers will start fluffing out. I know this probably doesn't help much. Good luck.

    A couple of them do look like roos to me, but I've heard it's especially hard to tell with easter eggers. Beautiful birds, anyway.

    I see two that I think are cockerels, they are both the patchy colored ones.

    Thank you. I think the two redheads are roos but I'm going back and forth on a few others. They change a lot week to week.

    No one is crowing yet and no spurs yet either. A couple of the redheaded ones ar just way bigger though so I'm just really confused on them.

    I know, I'm thinking the same. I'm growing impatient as I'm just so excited. They are all so pretty and I love watching their colors and markings change as they grow.

    Darker one in first pic looks like pullet to me. One in middle I'd keep eye on comb is pretty red and one next to lil white roo looks cockerel too. And, I think EE are more difficult too so I'm by no means an expert...lol

    Don't know if there are two, or just one in two photos but, your gold laced sebrights appear to be pullets at this time (combs are not red)

    It is really much better to have individual pictures of your birds. With a grouping some are looking down, some up, - or you just see small parts of one bird or two. Very confusing from photo to photo.
