    Any help on breed and gender would be great! I have no clue how old they are and I'd love to do some research on them. Thanks in advance!
     
  2. They look like Easter Eggers, but I think there is another breed mixed in.

    Both look like Easter Egger cockerels.

    Both are probably Easter Egger cockerels.

    You think both are boys?! What luck I'm having with my flock! I've had 12 altogether, 5 turned out to be roosters! I found a good home for one, kept one, ate the other and now it sounds like I'll be having 2 more chicken dinners! haha

    And my flock HATES when I add newbies so this is getting to be a frustrating hobby

    Yep, 2 Easter Egger roos.

    What if you were to order some sexed pullet chicks? The hatcheries are pretty darn accurate at sexing and then you don't have to worry about roosters or bringing in disease.

    That's a great idea! Maybe I'll do it sooner rather then later (before I worry about culling these two)

    Chick orders are so much fun too! You get to choose which breeds you want and how many of each!
