    Hi everyone, I just acquired a few Easter eggers the other day and am looking to possibly find out if anyone can help me figure out their gender. I know it’s not 100% guaranteed, but any thoughts would be appreciated. They are about 7 weeks old. Also sorry if the pic isn’t good, I can post more if needed.

    At this age they should be getting the tail and spikes if they havent gotten it already. Yours has a pea comb so it's harder to tell by judging those combs.

    At least it looks like a pea comb, hard to tell.

    Either way, youll know for sure once the spikes and tail become more defined.

    What do you mean by spikes?

    Agree with others, probably a pullet, cockerel and pullet.

    Hi, I really appreciate all of the comments, and sorry I haven’t responded in a few weeks. But that’s what I was thinking too originally, that the blue was a cockerel and the others were pullets. BUT, now coming up on 9 weeks old I’m inclined to believe that I may have two cockerels as the blacks comb is looking more like the blues. Then again maybe I’m completely wrong. Also the comb on the blue hasn’t grown any at all and is honestly looking a little more dull pink now, is it possible that it was a pullet all along with just a darker than normal comb? I can post pics this morning when I go out to check on them.
