    Hi all, been reading threads here for months, but this is my first post. Bought my daughter some Easter eggers about 10 weeks ago. 2 babies were from a hatchery and supposed to be pullers. Their colour was pretty different. One was smaller with red fuz. As they grew the red one took way longer to get his/her feathers, and the feathers are much tighter and streamlined. Now I'm wondering if the smaller one was a boy. We named the smaller one Peanut and the other one Ziggy. Peanut holds his/her tail straight up mostly, but sometime holds it down. Please see my pictures. Peanut is the second to the bottom with the reddish splotches over the wings. Ziggy is the bottom one.

    Oh that would be great! I also ordered some speckled Sussex day old chicks. I ordered one cockerel, but they shipped 2... so I ended up with nine chicks. I have 2 other very questionables. I don't really need another rooster :)
