    As far as chick (C) Hum... She/He doesn't have a beard, that is okay though.
    *MIGHT* be a rooster.

    How old are they?? I'm following out of curiosity. I just got my first 6 chicks and 3 are Easter eggers, they are only 2 weeks tho

    They are about 12 weeks old... yes I thought it was interesting that one didn't have a beard but I guess the Easter Eggers can really have a lot of variation?

    Well, it's not quite the variation...
    But sometimes that is like a late beard grower,
    or it isn't a straight out pure EE.

    It happens. Nothing to be worried about! ;)
