Can someone please help me sex our 3month old silver specked hamburgs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 



We are new to hatching chicks and had our first five eggs hatch about 3 months ago. I am thinking we may have 4 roosters and 1 hen but would like someone else's opinion. One is smaller with no comb development. It is also much more timid than the other 4. The larger 4 are all developing combs and longer feathers. The first pic is of our suspected hen. The second we think may be one of the roosters and the third pic is of the two together

In the first photo the one in front is a rooster and the one behind is a hen, middle picture is a hen and the bottom one is a rooster.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

X2 on oldhenlikesdogs' post. At 3 months, you can easily tell the cockerels from the pullets by the cockerels much larger and redder combs and wattles.

Agreed

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!

I agree.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
