    Here are my two EE's from TSC, they were in the St. Run bin so I hope I picked Pullets! The are now 5 weeks old so I'm hoping that if they were boys it would be showing more by now.
    First is Zippy

    Next is Peanutbutter

    (please be a girl [​IMG] ) if not Peanutbutter is staying just too cool of coloring, blue laced red on head going into a buff laced white body, and then a white tail tipped in blue. Can't wait to see final coloring!!

    With Easter Eggers, roosters usually have red shoulders and hens usually don't... This isn't 100% accurate, but pretty close (at least this is the pattern I've noticed with my own 37 two month old EEs).

    According to this, Peanutbutter's a roo (I'd guess this anyway though, due to his stance and comb).

    I'm not sure on Zippy...

    I have found that with easter eggers it is hard to tell at this age. I would wait and see in a few more weeks.

    Here are new pics of Zippy and Peanutbutter.

    I am leaning towards pullet for Zippy (best pic I could get of her, she is quite fast)

    Can you get better pics of their combs and heads? I think there is still deliberation on Peanutbutter...could be a she.

    Zippy is a pullet and Peanutbutter a roo I think because of the saddle feathers and sort of reddish comb.

    I would love to see peanutbutter in a few week. My EE roos had pretty big and red combs by 5 weeks:

    Here are what they looked like at 5 weeks

    This was Peaches at 5 weeks
