    The Easter Egger is a pullet but I think the Rocks are both cockerels. Better pics of them will help.

    If you got her from a hatchery or a feed store, she is an easter egger. Hatcheries started with Ameraucana type birds and Araucana types, and crossed them with production types to increase the lay rate. Ther term easter egger is also applied to any bird that lays a blue or green egg that doesn't meet any breed standard.
