Please Confirm My Suspicion!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Alright everyone, I hatched 4 GLW and 3 SLW chicks and I need help confirming their genders.

 

One SLW is approximately 3 weeks older than the rest (13 weeks old)-- and he's most definitely a rooster. Saddle and sickle feathers plus full comb and wattles. The other chicks are all 10 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the other two SLW are definitely hens. They look nothing like the rooster and are much smaller with little to no comb and wattles. Even one of the GLW looks like an obvious hen, smaller with little comb and wattles. The other 3 GLW I'm pretty sure are all roos but they're the three I need confirmed because one is much bigger than the other two and is already showing signs of sickle feathers while the other two aren't.

 

Pictures were next to impossible to get, so I made a short video of them all. I focus on all 3 of the GLW roos in question. I just want to confirm that they are indeed roos so I don't bond any more with them. Some of them are going to have to go :(

 

Here is the video on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0W8KbZ3q6I4

 

Thanks in advance!

I figured as much! Guess I was just holding out hope that maybe I had some manly pullets. It'll be sad to see a few of them go. They're my first ever incubated eggs :(
