    I have some Easter Eggers from Tractor Supply. I think 1 is a roo, and 1 is a pullet but there's one I'm not sure about plus I might be wrong on the others! Number 1 is the one I'm unsure about and it is one of the smallest ones of the four-always has been the smallest. Friendly but not a lap chick like number 3. Any input?

    EE number 2, pretty sure it's a rooster!

    Number 3 looks to be a pullet the other two I'm leaning towards roos.

    I'd say that 2 is a roo.

    What do their feathers look like? Are they rounded or pointed?

    I think #1 is a pullet. Looks a lot like my girl did as a chick. Time will tell...

    I agree that #2 looks rooish. #3... [​IMG]

    Pullet ROO AND ROO. 2 and 3 have pretty noticable combs compared to 1.

    Quote:Thanks! He is quite handsome. I had planned on getting rid of all the roosters but he's so pretty, I've decided to keep him.

    Good opinions! I'm hoping number 2 is the only roo! Number 3 looks like my other EE pullet (the other is more grayish blueish brown instead of mainly brownish) and is the only one who will jump in my lap and wait to be petted so hopefully "she's" a she. I'm not sure about the feathers. I've looked based on other threads I've seen and I honestly can't figure it out for some reason!
