Gender?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm a first time chicken owner. I got these from TSC (3 weeks ago this Friday). I know it's early but can anyone tell if they are pullets or cockerels? Thanks
Also I was told Rhode Island reds. Do you think that's correct? The 3 yellow ones are bantams. Silkie, Frizzle and ? Any help would be appreciated!!

I don't know much about RIR's and how they grow up and feather out but #4 does not looks like a RIR with that patterning! and same with #2 since it has white? #3 is not a RIR but perhaps could be a Rhode island white?

It does look like you have a white frizzle and white silkie for sure, thats good <3

As far as genders, silkies take a bit lonfer but I put my vote in the dude catergory. Out of the 4 silkies I hatched a few weeks ago, the smaller crested ones are dudes.

The frizzle looks pretty pullety from this angle, same with what I assumed to be a RIW, and the First RIR. The second RIR and the patterned one have suspicously large combs for that young age.

#1 is a Rhode Island Red. #2 is a red sexlink pullet. #4 is a Production Red. #3, no idea. #5 is a Frizzle. #6 is a Silkie.

Thank you. They all have different coloring so I wasn't sure. I can't have any roosters!

Anybody else have a guess?
Thanks!

None of them are looking overly suspicious for being a rooster...at this point. Silkies are one of the hardest breed to sex so you'll have to wait several more weeks to be sure (on all of them for that matter).

agree with  junebuggena .                            - the silkie is looking like a boy to me  tho it is very early and things can change overnight. The frizzle   is adorable too.
