About 10 Week old Easter Eggers, guess on Sex? Hoping for all girls, but hard to tell with these little guys! If I had to guess I would say the wheat/blue is girl, the more solid patterned is a girl, the reddish is showing more girl than boy, and the whiter one is showing more boy than girl, but still on the fence.

This is your rooster. Note the quilt like blocking of his coloring compared to the kaleidoscope even patterning of the females. In one of the photos, I noted a rather larger looking red comb too, which could be a male as EE's don't redden in comb until point of lay...and 7 to 8 weeks is not point of lay.

Watch this one. The comb in this photo looks a bit red and fleshy for 7 to 8 weeks suggesting rooster. The pattern looks pretty even, however, note the red brick which may be trying to come in at the wing bows. If that deepens, along with comb development, you've got a roo here as well.

All the rest look to be pullets.

Nice flock. Enjoy them. :D

So I'm still hoping my red is a pullet. Her tail feathers all came in fastest growing up, her comb is no bigger or redder than the rest, her tail feathers and saddles are very rounded, not a pointed feather on her.
My white on the other hand had no tail when the others had theirs coming in. Now that's it's coming in there are many hard pointed feathers, and more red around the face, all which lead me to believe rooster.

Okay well I did the math wrong, they're closer to 10 weeks in these pics.
