    We had two Easter Egger chicks born and they are growing up nicely. I now have four – two hens and two chicks. Three of them are the gold/brown color and one came out white. I have now read here that there are white ones. In the post I read the white one was a rooster. Pardon my lack of experience but is the white one I have a rooster? How do you tell? Will the eggs still be green?
    How does one get permission to add attachments so I can show you the pictures? Tells me I don't have permission. I added the pictures to my profile.
    Thanks.

    There is no guarantee that the white is male. Easter Eggers can be any color/pattern. Egg color has nothing to do with plumage color.
    To add pictures, just click on the icon that looks like a postcard with mountains. Then select which pictures you want to upload.

    Thanks for the reply. I totally missed how to add pictures. Here are my two Easter Eggers. They are now about three months old.
