Please help! I think we have a mix of both males and females but I'm a newbie. These are 10 week old Easter Eggers - which are boys and which are girls? Also, can you tell me why you think what you think so I can learn. If the white one is a cockerel he'll be our flock's rooster.

I think the second to last one could be a boy, can you post a side view pic of the white one? From what I could see, it looks like it could be a rooster

Thank you. I can get a better side shot after a while... Here is an action shot of it. It initiates these "stand- offs" all the time.

Thank you! Please see original post photos. I'm wondering about the 5 in those original photos. Thanks!

The two last photos look to be boys - the white one and the one with dark red patches on its wings. They also both have a lot of colour to their combs, and their combs are bigger than the first three which all look to be girls. There are some very pretty colours there! Hope you are enjoying them.

To me the next to last (red and white) looks bee rooster-ish. The last one does have a larger redder comb but still looks like it's could be a hen. The first 3 def hens. And I have one just exactly like the white hen. She's my favorite of all! So pretty. -accidentally put pic at top
