What gender are my delawares - Page 2

It's definitely gotten bigger and redder compared to the first photos you posted, I'll bet you find some barring hidden in there. Is changing my guess allowed? Lol

I have a RIR that's doing the same thing to me, I keep telling myself, one more week and I'll know for sure...

Keep us updated on his/her growth! Seeing the progression, especially on tricky ones, will help future readers as well.

Yea it's perfectly okay to change your mind xD I've done it a hundred or so Times with this one and my RIR. I was wondering if it's possible for the tail feathers to start growing in barred patterns because at the base of a few new ones.. they are barred but kinda messy like.

Okay so I managed to get wing primary feather shots and a few shots of the base of his tail feather where I think he is getting some barring in.. it a very messy though so idk. The hen of the same age has nearly all white feathers on her wings and tail and back. Also is a pic of his ever so red comb/waffle.

Got some pictures of them at 5 weeks for comparison to the 13 and 11 weeks pictures.

Both are 15 weeks but its quite possible they came from different hens, in fact it's highly likely hence the difference in tail feathering and waddle comb however I feel like it's so different that one is a roo now. Or about to lay eggs at 15 weeks .. xD
