2 roos and a pullet??????

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone
I have let one of my little Silkies hatch some random eggs donated by a farmer friend, she is a great mother and out of the four eggs we have now got 3x 7.5 week old chicks who are doing great! At 2 days old i checked the wing tips and decided i had 2 roos and 1 pullet (cockerels and hens to me;)) i hope i uploaded my pictures of them because one now has me doubting myself! 😀 and i had hoped someone with more chick experience could help me out please x


Picture one is the one i think is def a roo, two is the roo outside and the one i am unsure of inside the small run, three has the unsure one in front and the one i think is a pullet standing behind
Would love your thoughts please

I would say the two in the first two pictures are both cockerels, and the one in the back on the third is a pullet. So yes, it looks like your guesses are correct. As for breed, I would say Cochin cross.
