    I have two Easter Eggers that I am hoping you guys can help me decide gender on. They are both 5 weeks old, so I hope it is not too early.

    These are the two of them... I think the one on the left is a boy, and the one on the right is a girl... sorry I can't give you a better picture of the one on the left, he refused to stand still and all the close ups came out blurry.

    This is another shot of the one on the right in the first picture.

    Thank you for your help!

    If they're pea combed - check whether they have a single row of peas (like a ridge looking thing through the middle) or three rows of peas. Three rows means male. I can't tell based on your pics.
    Are they for certain easter eggers? I'm use to seeing greenish or slate legs and muffs [​IMG] They sure are pretty little things - love the splash of black feathers...

    Thanks everybody! I thought it might be a little early, but was hoping somebody would know. I'll check out their combs and take better portraits in a few weeks. And I'm pretty sure they're EEs, I got them from m friend who breeds/sells/raises multiple breeds. This is another one we thought might be a girl, but turned out not to be, from the same breeding as them (to the left of the wheaten). He's about 4 1/2 mos old.
