    I've got five Easter Egger chicks that are 7 weeks old now. I'm pretty sure two are roosters (although I'm hoping that one of the roosters is just a masculine pullet). What are your guesses as far as gender? This is my first time with little Easter Eggers and I'm curious to see if I got close as far as my guesses went.

    Thanks!!

    5. Rooster? I'm still holding out hope that maybe this one will be a hen. The momma is a HUGE (and kinda masculine) hen. Big tree trunk legs, giant comb and waddle, spurs... and she's almost as big as my rooster. Really hoping the baby is like momma... the mother was a black sex link bred to my Easter Egger Rooster.

    #1 and #5 look like roosters, could you take pictures of the rest standing?

    Here are pictures I took of them out in the yard earlier. Hopefully they will help! Otherwise I'll get new pictures in a bit. :) I figured those two were roosters. Was really hoping I was wrong about chick #5 though.
