    We are first time chicken parents. We have 4 leghorns, 4 silver laced wyandottes and 3 (the seller called then araucanas but they have tails so I am thinking ameracauna or easter eggers). One of my "easter eggers" I am thinking is a cockerel. In this pic it is the one second from the top... the dark body and red head. Can someone verify? They are about 8weeks old.

    I would post the photos at "what breed or gender is this." I've never seen an EE colored like that . It is a beautiful bird anyway.

    I don't see anything that screams cockerel right now. Can you get a comb pic and a better side pic of the body? I'd also like to be able to really see its legs.
