OH OH

I think one of my 2 rhode island whites might very well be a rooster
4 months old and this is what SHE? looks like?



And i also got two black jersey giants that one might be a Rooster also !
CRAP

Can you post a full body shot?  Hens do get red in the face and develop more comb/wattle when they start getting close to laying age so I wouldn't call this bird a roo yet based on that alone.

wife to long suffering husband who has built more miles of fence, barns, coops and enclosures then one man should have to, two teenage boys, current flock of 13 assorted hens, 1 big red roo and a list of other assorted farm animals.

I'd expect a lot more comb development in a cockerel. Agree a full body shot would help. 

 

How close can you narrow down age?

Can someone tell me if this is a rooster or a hen? I have 6 chicks and only 2 look like this. They are getting aggressive also.

Here is a pic of her or him as she walked in the coop
the one peeping in is a jersey giant same age and im wondering also about that one a bit
they are about 4 months old born in nov i got them about a month old on dec 23rd
the more i look at her stature im thinking she is just a maturing fast female now.. but the giant behind her?
lol prolly the same just a big girl...
I do feed them pretty good
they GF says i spoil them (the chickens) more then her...


ON another note
I do want to give them more room to roam so im thinking about makeing their area larger but it wont be covered like their run is now..

5 ft fence going to be tall enough to keep them in? LOL
not sure..

they are now in a COVERED dog run that is 7.5 feet by 12.5 feet

the new aditional area would be about 25 feet by 35 feet just not covered

So by my count it's about 20 weeks old. Definitely a pullet, getting close to laying :)
