    What gender do you think these two are? The other two I'm 99% sure on, these two are throwing us for a loop though. Never had these colors on EE's before so any help is appreciated! Hoping for girls, or at least 1 out of the two :/

    both look like cockerels, sorry. The silver one with red highlights is very unusual and gorgeous.

    What makes you say silver is cockerel? I'd say feather pattern is more towards a pullet for an EE...

    Because of the curved and pointy tail feathers. Also Easter Egger cockerels tend to develope red on the shoulders. Pulleys normally don't have that red mixed in with the grey. And it's comb is almost bigger than the red cockerel.

    Body shape and coloring of the red/brown one makes me think cockerel but it has like no comb, the other one I think pullet but the red coming in is making me hesitant. With these ones I would give it at least another week before giving a final judgement.

    Do you have a updated picture on the two hens? I have an 11 week EE that looks so similar to your darker one with the brown/ red. I was told she’s a pullet; I hope so! Here she is at 10 weeks. IMG_4200.jpg

    Yeah I would love to see what the red one especially looks like as an adult. Its feather pattern was not typical for a pullet at all.
