Thanks for the reply!Those are both cockerels. They both have the rusty red wing bars, which is male exclusive. You can judge the redness of the comb on one, but both won't usually go red early. The more dominant of the two will get a red comb, but the subordinate won't.
I have absolutely no doubt that those are both cockerels.
The thing I was sort of hanging my hat on, was:. For what I've heard/read with Easter eggers usually have a uniform kind of Partridge like feathering coloration. While the males tend to be blotchy with often red highlights in the wing areas? of course I've also read that because Easter eggers are basically a mutt, a combination of a whole bunch of genetics that it can sometimes be hard to attribute specific colorations to gender, because of all the gene mixing.
You're likely correct but I just wanted to share what I was thinking and bounce it off the group in my reply. By the way if it does turn out they both are cockerels and since I've never had cockerels , I was wondering once I was 100% certain which I assume will occur about 12 weeks or so; will it be necessary to pull one of the cockrell's out of that flock? If so at what age would I need to do that?
