Hey y'all. My girls 🤞 are slightly over 7 weeks old. Is it too early to tell what gender they are?

I will have to disagree. All look like pullets except Daisy! The head shot where s(he) is peeking out from under the other chick looks like 3 rows on the peacomb, which is a cockeral sign. You can also see it a bit in the other photo (your third photo). May be early, but time will tell. Also the more silver coloring can be a male sign, where all the others have brown/gold. This is not always the case with EE, but contributes to my opinion. Also looks like pointy feathers developing on the neck hackles but hard to see the saddle feathers in the photos.
These all look like Easter Eggers, you will be able to tell with more certainty when they are about 10 weeks old. They are all gorgeous birds!:)

Aww-- what a good looking little flock you have! 🤗 I have zero helpful information, just a comment.

The first picture of Sandy-- that's one really brought me so much joy!
I'm pretty sure that's the face that I make when I oversleep my alarm and suddenly jolt awake. I am absolutely certain this is the face I make when my husband makes plans for us and doesn't tell me until last minute and In my head, I'm listing everything that I have do to as I fume. 😆
So... your chicken Sandy may be my spirit animal. 😂
Trust me when I say it was a surprise to me too! :lau

Thank you! I actually have suspected Daisy for a few weeks now, because of that comb. I hope not though!
