    Hi! I hatched these guys out of a batch of mixed eggs/breeds. Are these Easter eggers? Can you tell gender?

    EE #1-I'm thinking pullet?

    EE #2-Possibly also a pullet?

    EE #3-Maybe a Roo?

    They were from hatching eggs from ebay, from one of the suppliers of chicks to Welp hatchery.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Sorry but none of those looks like an EE to me as they all have single combs and I'm not seeing anything in the way of muffs. I would agree that the first two are probably hens. The third one looks like a cockerel.

    I could be totally wrong here, but none of those look like EEs to me. They all seem to have single combs and yellow legs. I can't tell if they will have beards and muffs, but if they don't then they are probably not EEs since they would be missing all of the characteristics of an EE. Could be mixes of some sort, or they could just be other breeds that I don't recognize. [​IMG]

    I was told EE were mutt birds... Ameracuana crosses an even Ameracuana with faults... I had a Splash EE that had a single comb an I was told she was EE by Ameracuana breeders on here... an my Ameracuana chick was of incorrect color making it an EE... this is why I decided not to do the Ameraucana an EE... too confussing..

    Regardless of breed, the last one is a boy. The other two could possibly be girls.

    The second one looks like it has some Production Red in it.

    Quote:They cannot possibly be Ameraucanas, Araucanas, Langshans, Buff. . . You know what, the only thing on that list they could be are Welsummers or Welsummer crosses, so I hope you're joking. [​IMG]

    That's just the list the seller gave me when I bought the eggs. Thought I'd include all for everyone to see, include all pieces puzzle. Who know what mix of these breeds they are? [​IMG]
