    We got three chicks nine weeks ago, and are starting to wonder if we have a rooster. I'll attach pictures... But I'm hoping they will all be hens! Please help!

    Sorry I am new to this :)

    I was told they are easter eggers if that helps.

    I am a newbie and can only recognize for sure breeds that I have seen on here a hundred times since I live on this website[​IMG]. But the second chicken is GORGOUS! [​IMG]

    They look like EEs, need a better picture of the first one, the second looks like girl and the third one looks like a roo.

    Here's another picture of the first one. This one is much smaller than the other two (and of course is my daughter's favorite).

    Would you have a picture of the face showing the comb? Do you know how old they are exactly? It is mostly female colored, or at least I don't see any red on the shoulders or any besides what looks to be a little near the tail, it sort of has saddle feathers but they look rounded and EE girls often have long ones, but that tail shape has me a little worried.

    I'm gonna say pullet. I have an EE who looked the same way at that age, and she lays the prettiest blue eggs! EE's tend to have long tails.
