    They are about 13 weeks old, and they all look so similar. I can only tell them apart from the coloration on their beaks.Their mother was also black with golden markings

    wooo!! thats what I was hoping for -aren't we all tho!?

    IF they are it means I am super lucky because my hen/roo ratio would be 10:4 when does that ever happen, usually its the opposite

    would you mind telling me what makes them pullets. I can never tell with the EE and I would like to know what to look for with future chicks.

    They don't have saddle or hackle feathers, their tail is small, their comb is still yellow and small, and for an EE the roo would be more colorful.

    All the things that salt and pepper said are true. For me, it just took many many photographs to start to learn color patterns in Easter Eggers. The EE Sexing thread, while being very long, has a lot of great information as well as pictures.

    ok thanks so much! they are such a pain in the neck to sex compared to other breeds. Hopefully with practice I get better at it :)!
