Are they boys?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I had a poor hatch, only these 2 from 14 eggs (shipped).

I think they are boys...what do you experts think?

BCMarans 8 weeks old.

 

Thank you.

I'm generally pants when it comes to sexing chickens, but it does seem like a considerable amount of wattle and comb development at 8 weeks for them to be girls - i think your hunch is correct.

Both look like cockerels to me, too.

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!
