    Based on the tails I would say you have a pair.

    This is my first time with Easter Eggers, I bought three - one died, one's got a gimpy leg I'm hoping makes it and then this one in the pics. It's about 3 1/2 weeks old and was wondering if anyone more experienced with this breed could take a guess if it's a pullet or a cockerel. From day one it's been larger than it's same age brooder mates. There's no red, or even pinkish, on it's comb and no sign of wattles but that tail, oh my it's huge.

    It is a pullet. That is female coloring. A male to match that would be showing black in the breast. Also the tail is good sized.
