Easter Eggers 8 Weeks Old ... Gender - I'm confused! Any help is appreciated :)

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Troppo Chick, Nov 18, 2014.

  1. Hi everyone, I hatched 3 Easter Eggers 8 weeks ago. One which we thought was a roo passed away. Left me with just 2 which we thought were girls. I only have pic of one of one at moment. We thought they were girls but one started to attempt to crow thid morning. I've done my research on the internet but my Easter Egger is a silver type breed. Any ideas what sex this chook is ? or will I have to wait.

    I would also say pullet, but it's a little early to be sure

  6. Apologies for late reply. Yes she is looking like a pullet. I was very lucky to find another EE breeder through a friend who told me EE are hardest breed to sex and easier at 12 weeks. This one is looking like a pullet but the other one is looking like a roo. The comb is going a distinguished pink. But it's acting like a roo also. [​IMG]

    13weeks and they are both Roos! Combs went bright pink but the giveaway was the crowing!
