    I had one Easter Egger and One speckled Sussex make it out of the last hatch, so I don't have other chickens of the same breed to compare it to. They are 2 weeks old. I know it can be very early, but was hoping for some tips to watch for on sexing these. The Easter Egger has even rounded wing feathers when spread out, and the Speckled Sussex has uneven wing feathers.

    At this age you can't really tell, but some people say if the Easter Egger has a 3 row pea comb it's a boy and if it grows a 1 row pea comb it's a girl. This is not always accurate but you could give it a try.
