    The white one is looking like a boy and the brown rusty colored easter egger could be a roo but i'd have to see more pictures

    The white leghorn is definitely a girl. She is about two years old and lays eggs as big as baseballs. The one I'm curious about is the chick in the center of the picture. About 7 and a half weeks old Americana. Pretty "assertive" little thing. I will have to take more pictures and post them later

    (sorry took so long to answer) Ah i see well your Easter egger seems like a rooster to me mostly because of the rusty color and the bright red comb

    How about Blondie here? "She" and the Easter egger face off with hackles up quite a bit.

    At 7 weeks old, your Easter Egger is definitely male.
    Blondie is also a cockerel.
