    Hi
    I am new to raising chickens. We have four pullets, we hope. One is a splash easter egger and I have been unsure if it's gender for a while now. Does anyone have an opinion? thank you in advance.

    Thank you! I am feeling relieved! They are now 21 and 23 weeks old and they are not yet laying eggs, so we are getting worried!

    Looks like you have some more to wait. I don't see any redness to her head at all! But they will come.. She is pretty!

    Agree the splash is immature, but the sex link sure could be laying. Do you free range daily? You might need to either go on an egg hunt, or confine her for a few days and see if she's laying.

    My 5 EEs were not early layers. The 1st one to lay was 7 mos old and the last was 9 mos. old.

    I agree. All three of them, the EE, the Red Sex Link, and the Black Sex Link are all pullets. At some point you should be getting lots of eggs from those ladies; especially from the Black and Red Sex Links, which are egg laying machines.
