    The two yellow chicks are from an Easter egger hen and Delaware rooster. They're obviously very different coloring. Does anyone know if this means one's a pullet and the other a cockerel, or are their color differences possibly because one is favoring the Delaware?

    With crosses like this, color is a roll of the dice.

    They would be unable to be color sexed. The color is just a roll of the dice

    That's what I was thinking. They were just so different I was hoping it meant something. The lighter one actually shows more of the characteristics of a pullet. If only I knew how to vent sex :/

    They're too young to tell; the cross isn't sex-linked. When they are 6-8 weeks old, you can post some more photos and we'll be able to help you out more.
