Please help! Hen or Rooster??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I purchased her at a local feed store and they said she was a pullet; however, the older she gets the more I'm starting to worry that she might in fact be a HE! I have looked up multiple way to try and decipher but nothing seems to help at this point...Also, any idea

what he breed is?? THANKS!!!

Too young to be sure yet. Most early male signs aren't apparent until about 6 to 8 weeks old. The male specific 'pointed' feathering usually doesn't begin to develop until about 10 weeks old.

So far, nothing about your chick is indicating male. It looks like it might be a Production Red.

I'm thinking you have a production Red pullet. Post again when the bird is around 6ish weeks for confirmation. I'm not seeing anything male about the bird at all at this point.

Too young to sex, but I don't see any obvious cockerel signs.

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 one man in his time plays many parts."
