Jersey Giant Gender?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm starting to think the Jersey Giant I thought was a roo is actually a hen. He's 7 weeks old now and even though his comb is not small, it's very yellow still. I had three other roos who hatched the same day; barred and white rocks - and their combs were all very red. I know the JG grows more slowly, but I thought it would be more pink at this point at least.

 

Thoughts from my fellow chicken folks?

That comb looks like it's pinking up. I'd say cockerel

Ok, thanks. I'm glad. He's my only roo and I'm interested in having one.

I'm thinking that's a cockerel. Giants are indeed slow to mature. He may not give you the classic rooster signs until 8ish months old--crowing, mating, etc.
