Silver Pencil Plymouth or mix? Blue Orp and Barred Rock Hens or Roos?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

This was supposed to be a Silver Pencil Plymouth but the coloring looks different from what I've seen in pictures... hen or roo? She/he is 10 weeks  old. I also attached another pic of a barred rock who is about 4 1/2 months (was sick and had very stunted growth)  I still can't figure out if it's a hen or roo and also a blue orpington who is 10 weeks I have another blue orp the same age that I'm sure is a hen she is much bigger than him, but this one has a bigger comb/wattles....any guesses?

4 1/2 mo barred rock

Your silver penciled bird is a cockerel. I'm not familiar enough with how this color grows out to comment on the quality of the penciling...I'll let someone more experienced with the color do that.

The barred Rock is a cockerel. He's got quite nice barring.

I think the Orp is a cockerel, but have no idea what's going on with the size.

I read that the male silver pencils have black on their chest, that's what confused me, this one is all white. The blue orp also has a bare back, no feathers yet while the female orp is fully feathered
