Delaware Roo???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Have two, four week old Delaware chicks that are supposed to be pullets. One is spotted all over (not just the "smut" between the shoulders) and a bit larger than the other mostly white bird. What do you think? Is the bird in the bottom photos a roo or not?

:welcome Glad you joined us! It's a bit hard to tell this young, but they looks like they may be hatchery quality Delawares. And yes, the bird in the bottom may very well be a cockerel with those little red wattles already coming in.

Breeds I raise: Easter Eggers, Naked Necks, PROJECT white d'Uccles, Mille fleur d'Uccles, RI reds, Barred PR's, Assorted Cochins, GLW's, Sexlinks, Mutts, and one Lavender Orpington!

Turkeys: Bourbon Red ~ Standard Bronze

Ducks: Blue ripple and black Muscovys

I agree, too.

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
