    I would guess that the whitish colored one is a hen and the others are roosters

    First one is definitely a girl (I have four that look just like her [​IMG] ). The last two I am not sure on because I don't have any experience with those colors. If I had to guess from reading all I have read about EEs and sexing them by color I would say the second is a roo only because of the redder comb and the brown on the wings with it being a black and white EE. The last one I would guess is a pullet, but I could be wrong...by coloring that one is strictly black and white with no brown (at least as far as I can see from the pictures). That's just a guess though...I'm interested to see what other people say. [​IMG]

    On the easter eggers we have, the females have one ridge on their comb and the males have three ridges. But with easter eggers it can be realy hard to tell until they get older. my boy ones have always been larger than the girl ones and had thicker legs.

    The first is a girl--that's a color only girls come in. The second may well be a roo, but a better profile shot would help a lot, as would age. Try for a shot of the bird's whole body, feet included, while it's standing. Same for the third--that's one of the few colors I've seen go either way, so age and better profile shot would help a lot [​IMG]
