6.5 week chicks

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 


This first one is Rock, no idea if it's a he/she. Did feather a little slower than the rest of the mixed flock. I'm leaning to roo.



This is duck my araucana (Australian) not sure how to sex him/her



Hannibal (Barnevelder) and Poppy (red Ancona) 99% sure they are roos, which I can't keep :-(





Barb (Barnevelder) and Nugget (black Ancona) I'm fairly certain both are pullets. I hope I'm right.

Slow feathering and (at least to me) It seems like a lot of white in the barring makes me think the Plymouth is a boy, but the comb is really small.

I have never heard of or seen the Australian Araucana, so I am lost XD

If its your barnevelder to the far left in the first photo (third photo from the top) I would say roo, my girls have combs that size and they're around 7 months or so.

Which one is the Red Ancona? ^^ If its the little one with splashed white on it I would say female, as well with the Barnevelder in the bottom photo (4th down) Assuming its a different bird XD

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

Thanks. The red Ancona is the one at the back of the 3rd photo with the Barnevelder roo. It's comb is massive and red, I really like it, such a shame for me.

I believe the Australian araucana standard is different to the US. Not sure how, I just read it somewhere. Guessing they must be fairly similar.

This is my first flock so I'm kinda just rolling with it.

I love the crisper barring you all have on your Rocks than we usually get from hatchery stock here in the US. Your Rock is a pullet. 

 

Your Aracauna looks like a pullet. From what I've seen, males usually have pink combs pretty darn early with that breed, and a triple row of peas. 

 

Other than that, I think you're spot-on with your gender guesses. Sorry about your roosters, they're going to be beautiful birds.

If I am honest I would say it looks like a Sultan (the white on in pictures 2 and 6) because at least here in the US, Araucana's have ear turfts and are rumpless! And this little cutie looks like its got a rump! Lol, and I would agree that the Ancona is a roo, sorry ^^

Aussie standard for Aracauna is different than the US standard. They have the same name, but don't look at all the same. Aussie birds are tailed and crested. Causes a lot of confusion at times ;)

Not a bad ratio for hatching eggs. Really wanted "Duck" and "Rock" to be girls as they have the best personalities. "Nugget" is the friendliest but I knew she was a she already.

Thanks for all the replies. I'll let you know if any turn out to be different than expected.
