    Hey all,
    I have some "hens" that were hatched April 16th and I still see no eggs and no signs or crowing. Can some you gender experts take a look? I'm hoping I didn't get a lot of roosters.

    This bird has the largest comb in the flock but I see no saddle feathers.

    Rooster #3
    90% sure this a rooster based on feathers.

    The blue Easter Egger and the Silkie are cockerels. The pullets are still too young to lay.

    I don't even guess on silkies, but other than that...

    the darker bird you think is a rooster is indeed a rooster. The other two are female, and look like eggs shouldn't be too far out, especially from the blonde bird. Then again, it's the time of year they just may wait until Easter to start laying, it's kind of a crap shoot right now.
