    Generally 10 - 12 weeks is the prime time for sexing. But my best guess would be that the first chick pictured would be the potential male; the comb is quite large and silver color are more characteristic to males.

    I agree. And EEs can be very hard to sex, some won't even be sexable until 16 weeks.

    I agree and it also has a triple rowed pea comb which is almost always a sign of a cockerel. :(

    Based on the combs of these two at a month old, I'm thinking pullets?

    Are those not Easter Eggers? From the pictures, the combs look like they're single. A month is too young to know for sure, but I'd guess pullets.

    They have patterns that only pullets have and small combs so they both look like pullets! I do believe that they have pea not single combs??
