    New with chickens but done alot of research. I need some experts. We have 1 rhode island 2 easter eggers 1 lavandar orpington and 1 silver laced wyandotte. What are your thoughts on sex? I think the orpington, wyandotte, and one EE are roos and the other 2 are pullets. Top 2 being pullets amd bottom 3 roos. Thoughts? Theyre about 2 weeks old

    They are far too young to sex with any accuracy at all.

    Check back with updated photos in 6-10 weeks for more accurate sexing information.

    Which ones were sold to you as Easter Eggers? I'm not seeing any EEs here - from the looks of it you have three Production Reds (RIRs), a Lavender Orp, and a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Not EE, for sure - they both lack beards and show pink legs, not slate or willow. Even in the muttiest EE stock, you won't just happen to get two chicks who both lack those features. They have a Production Red look to them, though they do have a bit of a heavy chipmunk pattern compared to most Production Red chicks.

    What do you think they are? The only real difference between these and my RIR is the black stripe on the head
