    I have 3 Easter eggers that are approximately 21 days and I was just curious if any looked like a cockerel to yall . I know they are still very young but some of their combs do look different and one seems to have some red starting to show at the shoulder . I mean I could be wrong. Would love some advice . Thanks yall

    I see nothing that screams cockerel yet, but its a bit early. You need to wait at least until they're 6-8 weeks to find out. At the earliest!
    I know its hard!!!

    When I had easter Eggers almost all roos had the red shoulder. I even had one that was pure white except for some very faint red in the shoulder.

    Keep an eye on that oneits s probably a roo.
