    I have 3 im wondering about. Approximately 5 to 6 weeks old. First is a jersey giant, sold as an easter egger, pretty sure its not, sold as a pullet, looks suspicious to me. The 2 easter eggers were straight run.

    No, [​IMG] I already have two 8 week old roosters. 2 out of 11 bought as pullets! Trying to find a place for them.

    The second EE has three tiny rows on it's comb. The other one doesn't. I've kinda resigned to the fact the JG is a boy. He/she challenges the big hens when I let them mingle and has little waddles already.

    The Jersey looks like a roo, the comb grows taller and faster in roosters

    I was kinda worried about that. My 8 week old production red just sprouted a huge red comb over night at this age. [​IMG]

    The last Easter Egger is without a doubt a cockerel. Too young to be certain of the others.
