    About a month ago we bought 4 EE's off of craigslist. They were hatched by someone trying out a new incubator. She had received a few blue and green fertilized eggs...that's all we know. We are 99% sure that one is a pullet, but these 3 have us scratching our heads. They are now 5 1/2 weeks so I thought I would post a few pictures and get some opinions.

    I'd say they're all cockerels at this point.

    Also, they look more like Australorps than Easter Eggers.

    id say all roosters, and I highly doubt they are EEs, no beards, and they all have single combs. Did she only hatch blue/green eggs?

    They all look like cockerels, but not Easter Eggers.

  9. Yep, you hit the rooster jackpot. Do you know what breeds layed the eggs?

    I'm thinking that they are all cockerels. And, I agree that they look more like Australorps or another black breed.
