    We have 2 Easter Eggers that I am confused about I know one is a hen the other has different shaped tail and haven't seen the one drop an egg. We were told they were Ameraucana but I'm pretty sure EE. This one is a hen.

    This next one has a different shaped tail we think it is a hen but haven't seen it drop an egg or felt one inside. Our girls lay white brown green pale pink eggs.

    Pretty little flock, can see why you have a colorful egg basket, that second EE with the gray beard looks like a girl also.

    Thanks! ! They are 9 mo old make near rooster crow so they had us really wondering. The talk about colors on certain body parts for males is confusing. We just waited to see if tail feathers would appear.

    Those are both females. That's one of the things with EEs, since they're not really a breed they can have different shapes sometimes. I see what you're saying about the tail, but that's all girl.
