    Ok so I have 3 Easter eggers and 2 silkies that I'm not of genders and silkies are 11 weeks and Easter eggers are like 8/9 weeks someone has been trying to crow and I haven't been able to catch who it is . So I know I have a cockerel in the mix just not sure which one it is . Can anyone help with the Easter eggers bc I know silkies are the much more harder breed to sex . So if i can rule out Easter eggers then I know which silkie is the cockerel .

    All the Easter Eggers are pullets. I can tell because their combs are small, not red, and one row instead of 3. The pattern and the shape of the feathers are an indicator as well.
