    It may be too soon to tell but these are two and a half week old Easter Eggers and I've read a lot about feather patters of Easter Eggers. Anyone have any guesses if we have roosters or hens? Thanks.

    They are really young so you can't say for sure, but I'm thinking pullets.

    That one looks an awful lot like my Scout, a roo. Funny, when he was a chick we thought he was a he......then up until a few weeks ago we thought he was a she. Now he's back to being a he.

    I had a hen that looked just like that named Snowball. My roos had more of a comb by 7 weeks.
