    These 2 Easter eggers have me stumped...sometimes they look more like hens, sometimes they look like little roosters. They are 9 weeks old, and were vent sexed as ladies. What are your thoughts?

    Welcome! I think that the bird on the left is a pullet, and want a better pix of the other cute brown/ black chick. Mary

    In the first pic, the bird on the left is a pullet.

    The other bird, I'm leaning toward pullet also, but we really need a better pic. A profile shot of the bird standing naturally, in good lighting, that shows the head and legs.

    Males should be very red in the comb by that age.

    Finally got a good picture of her. She's a bit camera shy...
