    She/he is about a month and a half old and is one of the same easter egger chicks from my previous gender post (if you go to ny profile). Seems like this ones comb is developing a little more pink and larger at the top than the other ones is..? However it doesnt look like there are three rows of ridges to me..What do you guys think? Were in the process of introducing them to our flock and are slightly worried about having problems with our other rooster if this one does happen to be a male. Thanks for your help! 20191015_225111.jpg 20191015_225130.jpg 20191015_225159.jpg 20191015_225232.jpg 20191015_225307.jpg

    It's way too little to know for sure yet. But I don't see anything screaming cockerel so far. Can you post more pictures in a few weeks?

    looks pullet-ish to me. Give it a few more weeks as @chrissynemetz suggested.

    A white Easter Egger? How cool! What color are the legs? Looking forward to seeing more pictures in a few weeks, male or female!

    I read somewhere that Easter eggers that were white tend to be male, anyone heard this? The legs are green. Guess we will have to wait and see.

    The white ones are often male, but not always. I've seen several very pretty white Easter Egger pullets on here :)

    How cute. I'm guessing a roo since it's comb is coming in so soon. Just a guess. I have 4 EE and their combs are very different from one another.

    Easter Eggers can look quite different depending on what crosses are used, just because they are white doesn't mean they will all be roosters, and yes their combs can be different too, about half of mine I hatch out of my flock have the single comb like the moms and the other have got the pea comb of dad. Easter Eggers are not an actual breed but a cross and there can be many different combinations to get them as long as one of them are a blue egg layer.

    That being said it's still to early 2-3 months you should be able to tell for sure.

    I have a white EE that has yellow legs and a large pea comb. built very slim and upright. I was just sure she was a he for a very long time, but she started laying pretty blue eggs about 3 weeks ago. She does have a few blackish spots in her feathers, though. Not much.
