    I bought 3 Easter egger pullets from the feed store, however I was reading here online that the females are kind of plain, whereas the roosters have splashes of color on their neck wings and back. Also 3 rows of combs. These are only 4 weeks old, but the first 4 pictures show Daisy she is the first to have any comb and is very colorful compared to the other two, bigger, also with big thick legs... The others I think are probably pullets. It may be too soon to tell, but what the heck...Any help will be appreciated

    Below is Daisy..or Davy..

    EE's are so hard to sex, Daisy does have some pretty big legs, but I would give it more time- I had an EE hen with tree trunks for legs in my last flock, but she was definitely a girl. I do think your others are pullets though [​IMG]

    I am not as experienced as others, but in the 5 months I have been raising my EE I have learned they can trick even the most experienced!!! Mine were 10 to 12wks old before I knew %100 what I had. I also posted pics asking advice when they were around 6 to 8 weeks and almost everyone guessed one of my pullets as a roo. She now gives me a pretty green egg almost daily!!!

    Thanks, I was just reading a thread here on BYC that was talking about how it is easy to sex the EE roos by their color, and after reading, I started thinking uh oh I think Daisy is a roo.

    Daisey looks like a roo with those legs. I'm not sure he's an ee, either--straight comb, legs aren't green, color is unusual for ee that I've seen. The other two look like ee girls. I'd love to see pics of Daisy in a few weeks.

    daisy's legs might mean roo or she could be a hold over from another order and a week older, time will tell, still a little young to tell.

    Actually I bought her when she was exactly the same size as Cleo and Petunia, which is the second and third set of pictures. Petunia was actually bigger at the time when we purchaced them, but now Daisy is much bigger, has splashes of color etc. etc.. I guess time will tell:rolleyes:
