    I have two Easter eggers that are about two months old. One is for sure a male and the other I can't tell

    It's the white and black one

    It's fairly aggressive with the other chicks and fights and stands off with the male and sometimes the other chicks. It also puffs or it neck when standing off with the male. Any help would be appreciated!

    I'll be in the barn!
    Wait and see. I'm thinking Cockerel, but most people here tend to stereotype white EEs and say they are all male. I posted pics of mine who looked just like this and five people responded saying rooster. Today she's a happy one year old hen laying green eggs [​IMG]

    It's starting to get green tinted tail feathers but they aren't super green. They also are shaped a little differently then my other cockerel's feathers

    Cockerel, too much color in that comb.

    Cockerel, not because he's white, but the comb color and the splotchy pattern on the chest.
