I recently acquired some baby easter egger crosses from a friend who was breeding crosses just for fun and I picked out some babies who were "pretty". Unfortunately, I think I might've picked badly and gotten cockerels. LOL Anyway, previously I had always bought breeds from hatcheries and this is my first foray into "I wonder what the cross/color/sex is" It got me to start reading about chicken genetics but I am still confused about color terminology for some of the colors. Any good summaries with real good pictures that you guys can point me to? So I got four babies, they are about 6 weeks now. One is white, but really a very pale tan? what is that color called? and what sex do you think? I think she is a pullet, based on behavior and comb. Then there is a small frizzle, a bit younger, and not sure you can tell the sex on her yet because she might be too small still. The other two, I am afraid are both cockerels. The white and black one (white with barred black? is that what it's called?) I think I actually heard his first crowing attempt, so pretty sure he's a boy. The other one is black with some white "barring?" but has no tail, and the comb is not as big, but very reddish. Still, that one is very aggressive and puffs his neck feathers up and beats all the other ones up. Also the head on both of those looks "masculine". But they are crosses and I can't remember what she told me they might be crossed with so the combs could be different. And not sure if it's a breed difference for the head shape? Anyway, it's been a good learning experience. Thanks for any input!
