Gender guess

post #1 of 8

These 3 little chickens are about 8 weeks old. I know it's early but I'm wondering if anyone could tell what gender they might be?

In the first picture I see 3 cockerels and a pullet.

The one in the background is their adopted mother. You think all 3 of the young ones are cockerel?

I mistook the mottled cochin hen for another of the 8 week olds.  I think that the buff and white chick and the chick in the foreground are both cockerels.  I believe that the chick to the left in the group picture is a pullet.

Yeah sorry, I couldn't get a picture without mama bird. Chick #2 comb is weird to me and it's hard to tell.

I agree

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
