Sexing Jersey Giants! (Lots of images!!)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I incubated 4 Jersey Giant babies who hatched Feb 16th! I've been raising Seramas, and Silkies, so these babies look 3 months old, nevermind almost 3 *weeks*. I was hoping for some advice on their sexes? I think 1, 3, & 4 are going to be hens by their attitudes and long tail feathers but Ive never owned JG's before!

1) Pistol



2) Goliath



3) Yuki



4) Judith (or possibly Jude - look at broody mama behind her flipping out! And yes her foster mom is a Serama...uh oh...)

They are still pretty young yet. In another month or so look to see the boys combs turning pink and the girls to remain an orange yellow for a few months.

Officially 4 weeks old and already they look so much different from last pictures! Pretty darn positive the blue one is a boy





Also pretty sure the white one is a pullet but the black one is turning a little red?

The white one is a pullet, the two darker ones look to be roosters, with the lighter one definitely a rooster and the blacker one, more than likely.
