    Hatched these eastereggers in October and I can't tell if they're hens or roosters. I can only keep the hens. Any help telling them apart would be greatly appriciayed![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    It is too young to tell gender for sure, especially without photos of each individual bird and its comb. The bird on the right is looking a little cockerelish, though.

    It is too early to give an accurate guess, but the 3 in front *could* be roosters. It is very hard to tell though. Especially with EE's.

    Yah true, but only time will tell, but look out for big wattles, combs, and a extreamly bent tail.
