12-15weeks 7chooks need your opinion, hen or rooster?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
1 . plymouthrock about 14weeks old



2. Australorp about 14-15 weeks old. She is huge!



3. Sussex A. 14weeks old. She lost a bit of feather on her tail when we got her from the farm got pecked by others. It is all growing back that is why it looks a bit funny.




4. Sussex B. 13 weeks old. Younger&smaller than sussex A.


5. French maran A. 8-9weeks old



6. French maran B. 8-9weeks old, same age& batch maran A


7. Finally my 3 kids favourite Silky 13 weeks old





We live in an area that does not allow us to keep roosters. We got these lovely chooks from a local chicken grower who tried his best to pick "Hens" only. But he can't (of course noone can) guarantee that they will be... we haven't heard any crowing at all so far. Their combs did not grow much since we got them but getting slightly more pinkish I think. Except sessex B has tiny bit of wattle growth but not much comb growth compare to sussex A.

Last photo is our new chicken coop made out of recycled timber and material except the mash. Took us to build 3 weekends but very happy with it.



Love to hear other experts opinion about our lovely 7 chooks...hen or rooster?. Thank you so much in advance.

I see only pullets but can't speak for the Silkie. No idea how to sex those.

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

85% certain that they are all pullets.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.

I'm positive everyone except the silkie is female, and I'm pretty sure on her also, just not as familiar with sexing them this early.

I think they are all pullets too. The silkie I think is a pullet too, the crest is even and round, no streamers.

I think they are all pullets even the silkie  but, would like to see a face forward shot, with crest held back or with rubber band, so I can see the full extent of the comb. Beautiful bird.
