    i have two Easter Eggers. And can’t quite tell if I have two pullets or not. What do you guys think?

    I'm not an expert, but they look awfully young to have Combs that big and red. My money would be on cockerels.

    Well dang. I thought maybe the lighter one was a pullet. Just by the color. Wasn’t sure about the darker one. This means I may have 6 roosters. That’s too many

    Most likely cockerels

    Yep, those combs sure aren't a good sign (if you want hens, that is).

    I feel those are probably cockerels.
