    I hatched three chicks all out of Easter eggers. I think I have 2 pullets and one cockeral but help is appreciated. They are nearly 4 weeks old.

    this one I think might be a cockeral his tail feather is quite short, he stands a little differently than the other two and he is very feisty and attacks my hands.

    these are the two I think are pullets they look so much alike.

    Any help appreciated.

    Still too early to be sure. Red chests usually indicate female, but that's not always the case with mixed breeds.

    Thanks I will post some more pics later.
    Dutch Bantams are beautiful........they are probably what I would get if I were to add another breed.

    It means they also agree. x2 is 'I agree'. x3 would be 'I also agree.'

    I've been trying all day to post pics of some of my hens on here. It won't let me upload from my cell phone for some reason. Try again tomorrow.
