    Welcome to BYC -- are you asking how to identify easter eggers or how to tell the gender of easter eggers? If you have chicks and are wanting to sort them out you could post photos of them and we can help you ID who is what.

    You can post pictures of your chicks at "what breed or gender is this." You will get better results if you wait till they are 6-8 weeks old

    Sometimes fluffy cheeks give it away but the EEs I got from Murray McMurray did not have them. Can you post pics?

    because they are not an actual breed, but a mix of breeds, Easter Eggers don't have any one standard of characteristics that identify them - which can make it difficult sometimes to spot them with certainty. *generally* speaking, they tend to have greenish legs, pea combs and some degree of beard/muffs -- that being said, there are clean faced, single (or other) combed and yellow (or other color) legged birds that are Easter Eggers.......
    If you take some photos of the bird you have and post them we will gladly take a look
