    I got these easter eggers at a feed store. I'm still wondering if they're pullets or cockrels. If anyone can tell me the gender that would great! Thank you!

    How old are they? From what I can see, #1 appears to be a pullet, #2 - I'd need to see a better pic showing the comb and legs.

    #1 is a pullet and #2 I am gonna say cockerel.

    It just has that "look" in its eyes that tells my gut "roo!" Hope I am wrong though [​IMG]

    At about 5-6 weeks you should be able to tell. If you look at the comb, cockerels will have both size and color.

    Both are pullets - number 2 has a color which only females have, so def. not a cockerel. Number 1 I'm not quite as sure on, but appears to be a pullet to me as well.
