I have a few 7 week old easter Eggers and lav orps that I need help sexing! Here are pictures.

This is Florence the lav orp. I'm pretty sure she's a pullet.

Lady Bird. I suspect Lady Bird may be a roo...

Helen the Easter Egger. This photo is from two weeks ago. Helen's coloring and temperament make me concerned about being a roo.

Dolley the EE is the red one in front. I'm pretty sure Dolley is a pullet.

This is Jackie. She has been the bossiest and meanest chick from day 1. I suspect she may be a roo.

Thanks everyone!

from what I see, I think Helen and Jackie (judging Jackie by the nice comb shot in Dolley's photo.) are the only pullets LOL. I could be wrong. Do you have any good pictures of the Easter Egger combs? The only one I'm 90ish% sure is a boy is Dolley. See how his tail is more pointy, and he has three rows or red/pink 'peas' for his comb.

I don't have any closer photos of the EE combs but I see what you're talking about. Dolley's comb is definitely wider than Jackie's. I'll take more pictures when I get home later!

My guess is only the EE (dolly) is a cockrel. All thw others look like pullets x
Thank you! All of our chicks are named after First Ladies so maybe Dolley will have to be renamed James (Madison)!

Have you tried posting photos at "what breed or gender is this." It's usually best if there is only one bird per photo and nice clear close-ups of head showing full extent of comb. Plus standing side view -natural stance.
