    I have two birds that I'm not sure what sex they are.

    The Easter egger has been crowing for the last couple of weeks. I just thought that if it was a male he would have a bigger comb!!

    Thanks!

    The Production Red looks to be a point of lay pullet. The Easter Egger is 100% boy.

    The EE is definitely a rooster. I think the pea comb is what's throwing you as far as size, Pea combs don't get as large as straight combs, and they often don't have much for wattles either. but that bird is all male, for sure. The red hen looks to be laying soon.
