    Three weeks old, bought as 'sexed' Ameracaunas. So are my little Easter Eggers all pullets? These were bought to replace my 8 wk old thats turned rooster. One roo replace with three right?

    Look like girls so far, but those EEs can be tricky.
     
  3. could you get some pictures of their legs? spurs are just starting to grow around this age in roosters

    It's a bit too early to tell for sure. All my 13 hens had the spur nubs at this age. Spurs generally do not develop until much later.

    They are all pullets. You can tell by the color pattern. In EE's that brown/gold pattern indicates a pullet.

    Well sounds positive so far! Man these Easter Eggers are tricky! I'll post again in a couple weeks and see if they still look like girls.

    DH thinks Huckleberry is suspicious because she's feathering in so pretty and is really spunky, she didn't look like anything special when she was a day old just black body and a reddish head and the other two looked chipmunky. Now she's prettier than both I think.

    Thanks everyone!
