    For the life of me I cannot figure out the sex of Wobble, my 7 week old Easter Egger. Would anybody be so kind as to give me some help? . [​IMG]

    The other four that I have I'm almost 100% sure I'll pull it, but this one refuses to give me any hints. I know three Brose usually means mail, and that red come home at this point you should indicate male, and I'm 90% sure it's a male, but I could really use some expert advice :) Thanks you!

    It appears to be a cockerel.

    Crap. Now I'm thoroughly confused because the other with white splotches has a three pea with middle row prominent but it's yellow. "Turtle" also acts more like a pullet. So difficult... [​IMG]

    #1 looks like a cockerel, not sure one #2 though. How old is it? Could you get some better pictures?

    I will today. I'm sorry. It was a last minute question and that's the only picture I had! I'll update this afternoon. Thank your time :) I have my fingers crossed that it's a little pullet.

    [​IMG][/IMG]Ok tomorrow I'll post current pictures! In the mean time the one all the way to the left in the first picture, 5 weeks old there and 2 weeks old in the picture on my lap. You probably still can't tell as the first picture is too small and the second too young but maybe you can :) I'm beginning to think it's a cockerel too :-( Very pullet-esk comb but lots of white splotches that cover most of shoulders unlike the definite pullets who are uniform in color. :-( my favorite pullet died last week so I am super bummed. The other definite EE pullet isn't friendly like the one who passed. Very stand offish. Oh well. I'll post a better picture of "Turtle" the ? tomorrow.
