    Help! I'm not sure what gender these two are? Both were sold to me as pullets.

    Thanks!!! So the tail feathers pointing up on the easter egger aren't a sign it's a cockerel?

    The Easter eager has a small comb, and a larger tail (pullets tend to develop their tail feathers faster than cockerels)
