I met my Easter Egger in a bar in old SoHo where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Cherry

    Now, I think my pullet "NeNe" is a "Lola"!

    I am brank spanking new to raising chickens. I purchased three day-old female chicks from a commercial hatchery 5.5 weeks ago. I've been told by a friend that one is a male and possibly another. I can't have roosters in my town!

    Suspect "Lola" on left:

    Suspect "Lola" on left, "Phaedra" on right and "Kim" in background:

    Is this considered the tell-tale splotch of red on "Lola's" wing???

    Do you think "Kim" will grow out of her awkward stage and lay lovely blue (?) eggs:

    From left "Phaedra", "Kim" and suspect "Lola"

    What about "Lola's" comb on left and "Kim's" on right? "Kim's" comb is already so bright!

    Thanks so much for any expertise you can share with me. I need to be finding new homes for the rooster(s) if necessary and contracting another "Real Housewife" for "Phaedra"!

    All three are pullets in my opinion and experience. They have the classic pullet pattern, and their combs are very discreet. I see no red patches on the wings, and my 4 week olds are getting them (the boys). ETA: That is not a red splotch :) That is an orange splotch.
