12 weeks old Bourbon reds, hens or Toms? - Page 2

I just wanted to pop on here and let everyone know that they're all hens. I was even mistaken about the older one being a tom as she's also a hen lol. Now I have all hens and no tom!

They are hard to sex when younger, especially in photos, though one of mine I thought was a Tom appears to be a hen. Still fun whatever they are.

I think I may have the opposite problem lol - 4 bourbon babies and I'm suspecting that I may have an abundance of toms! They're young yet..... so I'll have to wait to find out for sure. I'm jealous of your bourbon hen problem smile.png

Two years ago I was 4/4 toms hatched.

This year I bought poults ended up 8/5 toms/hens.
Swedish flower hens, Orpingtons, including the albino gene, viral and Bourbon Red turkey. For now. I live where people travel to vacation, why should I go anywhere?

OH! speaking of which, I did talk to her about the chicken train and she said as long as she can make the route work but that's all I've heard from her.

I know she is stopping here for some stuff for her, so I'm planning on sending you a tom.
