    Are they just mutts? And is the one on the right a pullet? The other is an obvious rooster and I would like to keep them both just because they are different from the rest of the flock but only if they are a pair.

    They do look like easter eggers, but I am not sure of the sex.

    They are both Easter egger roosters. One is just beardless.

    Need a much clearer picture to confirm the one on the right, but both look like cockerels to be. They look like Easter Egger mixes to me.

    One red spot on wing. Was hoping this wasn't an EE roo give away :(

    Random dark red on the wing is always a rooster give away. But his comb is very well developed and he's got male hackle and saddle feathers, too.

    I thought at first that he was a roo then started to second guess myself just from their two totally different personalities. If I were going to have any hope (and lack of sense) how long before if it is a pullet would it be before I knew for sure? Not sure on age as I was given the pair but if there are no eggs in a month would that be long enough to wait and pray?

    They look like they are about 14 to 16 weeks old. Easter Egger pullets would just be starting to pink up in the combs. There is no chance that either bird is a pullet, honestly.
