EE #1 Pretty confident this is a male. DEEP red comb. Very flighty compared to the others.


EE #2 Has a few bumps, but not much color on them. Seems more pullet-ish in looks than the others comb-wise to me. *shrug*


EE #3 This is the last one. You can see a hint of her/his face in the second image I posted. This is a side view. They were not looking at me. So unphotogenic.



And the cochins...



Roo?
Comb isn't red yet, but I see wattles.




No wattles like the other. Camera didn't like focusing on the darker bird.
Her/his eyes are infected hence the funny look to them. Pfft. Also, what color is it?

The Easter Eggers are around 8 weeks now. The photos are dark. The comb on the the first one is as dark red as the comb of my male rhode island red. I'm fairly certain that one is a male. But if there is a possibility I'm wrong I will wait and see. I need more girls. Haha. And the Cochins are around 6 weeks

Here is an image of the first ee ten days ago and you can see red then forming. Don't know if that makes a difference

Does the comb have 3 rows? It does not look like it, but it is hard to tell. The EE roos usually have 3 rows.
