    I had my husband hold the chickens - let me know if I need better pictures :) They were born the end of September. [​IMG] They are the first chickens I have ever owned and am excited to start getting eggs in the spring! (Assuming I have a female lol)

    Easter Egger #1 (My guess is a male?)

    My little silkie - I hope it's a girl! (So cute, hard to not be a favorite!)

    easter egger #2 (grey...again my guess is male?)






    [​IMG]
    Easter Egger #3 - I was thinking female because she has the puffy cheek feathers. But I really have no idea!!



    Please let me know what you think - I am so excited!

    The EE all look male to me, and the silkie is too soon to tell.

    All of them are males except for perhaps the Silkie.

    This is the only one I didn't take a picture of. Easter Egger #4 I was thinking it was a female.

    Thoughts?[​IMG]

    Easter Eggers 1 through 3 are all males. Easter Egger 4 is a female, and your Silkie is probably a female, although I agree with Sunshine0235 that it's a little young to be absolutely certain. Young Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex accurately.
