Could all these be cockerels?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So here I am yet again! I'm sure you're so tired of me by now, but it can't be helped. :P I've got 5 2-week-olds who I'm beginning to think are cockerels by the size of their combs.

 

First up, Phoenix.

Mille Fleur

Porcelain d'Uccle #1

P d'Uccle #2

Piranha, Mille Fleur to the left.

Any thoughts, guys?

They're definitely still way too young to tell. I'm not seeing anything overly suspicious at the moment.

Okay, thank you very much! :) I do know that they're just babies yet, so it's going to be difficult to say immediately, but I REALLY want them to grow up soon so I know what I have. :P

I understand your impatience! I felt the same way with my last batch of chicks.

 

I would enjoy them while they are still so young!;)

You're right! They're only babies once, so I need to slow down and make the fuzzy cuteness last. :) Eventually I'll know.
