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!
