6 week old Delaware "pullets" from a feed store - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 

so, photos 1&2 are what i think is the cockerel for sure. He is pretty tall, legs shaped differently, thicker too. 3,4,5 are what i HOPED was Della....she is shorter, SAME comb exactly as the other one tho...tail shot is blurry but you can see it is barred and not solid black (yet?)....compared to the first two shots you can see her markings are much lighter...they are 7 weeks yesterday i think. HER legs are shorter, she is squatter...part of me likes this "boy or girl" thing but i got them at feed store to avoid that! after two hatches this spring i really did not want to go there. 

 

 

On a personal note, i am new to the posts here and glad you are doing well Rachel.....

and also...i am interested in your blue egg sex link bantam project...let me know if you get eggs available or even chicks! i love to drive to oregon!

At 8 weeks I'm still thinking pullets. Again, there's a touch of color to the comb, but they're no where near as large or red as most cockerels this age.

 

This is more what I'd expect from a cockerel....
