Hi there .. new to chicken parenting. This is an Easter Egger, I believe. It is now 10 weeks old. I have two chickens in all. I was told when i purchased them, both were pullets. Please share your opinion regarding sex. Thank you in advance.


Date: Aug 4, 2019 - thinking a week old here due to the presence of tiny wing feathers.

I have one that is the exact same age and looks similar. I have also posted trying to find out what he/she is. I am thinking yours may be a male, only because of the feathering color. I don’t have experience with Easter Eggers, So I am not really sure but that is just my opinion. Good luck!
