Hi! This is my first batch of chickens ever, so naturally I've had many questions, but this is the first time I've posted on here! I'm worried because one of my Easter Eggers is acting like a cockerel :/ I brought them outside for the first time yesterday and she acted much like the roosters I've seen, watching out for the other pullets and standing a little apart. She also always looks straight at me, kind of giving me "the eye". She also is a little bigger than the other two of the same breed. Besides that I haven't seem any other signs, no comb development yet and she wasn't late feathering, but I'm still worried. We got 6 out of pullet bin at Rural King, so they were supposed to be sexed, but I know it's only 90% accurate. I've attached pictures, please let me know what you think! They're about 2 weeks old.
He/she is the one looking right at me ("the eye"!)
The one looking around.
