    I have read through just about every page on Easter Egger sexing, but my own desire for pullets keeps getting in the way of my judgement... I'm apologizing in advance for no direct picture of this one's comb (it is small and flat with three ridges, just starting to turn red). Its name is Mr. Muffs. I was sure it was a pullet until I saw red in the feathers (but not on the shoulders). It's about five weeks. Any guesses?

  2. Very interesting looking bird.
    I'm guessing cockerel only because it is splotchy with it's patterns

    Sorry, I agree. 25 of 30! I'll keep what kind of luck that is to myself. Hope your other five are pullets.
