Help! Pullet or rooster 🐔

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have 4 8 week old chicks. 3 Wheaten pekins and 1 porcelain silkie feathered x (this is the one I'm having most trouble sexing) I am pretty certain I have 2 hens (both wheaten pekins) and 1 rooster (Wheaten pekin) but the other not so sure, thinking maybe a roo? What do you think this one is and the others? Thank you smile smile.png

Chicken 1 - not sure on sex



Chicken 2&3 - think they are pullets, look v alike, both have small pale combs still



Chicken 4- certain rooster

This was him at 6 weeks

:welcome  I agree with you and think that 1 is a cockerel, 2 and 3 are pullets, and 4 is a cockerel.

So do I.

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!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
