Do I have a rooster on my hands? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

I agree with a roo, but, don't lose hope. I have a chick I thought was a roo and it turned out to be a hen.

Yes, same answer...no Pullet is going to be that red at 7 weeks. Bummer. Pretty bird though!

Based on my own experience with my BOs, I would say you have a cockerel.

I can post some pictures later of my BO cockerel, but I'm uploading a video to my FB right now where all my pics are at so I can't access it. I also have some pics of a BO pullet that I had until recently too I can post for comparison in a little bit.

Alright, here are a couple pics of my cockerel and the pullet around the same age.

 

The pullet is on the left, cockerel on the right (the only 2 buff color in there). If you look you can see the pullet didn't even really have much of a comb then.

 

cockerel closer up.

 

Here's another one of them a little older. You can see that even in these the pullet barely has a comb or wattles. The cockerel's comb and wattles are really starting to get big and red at this point.

Hello,

 

I'm a new Chicken "mom" and absolutely in love with my six little chicks.  They will be 7 weeks old on Monday.  I have two Buff Orpington, two Light Brahma and two Barred Rock.  One of the Buff Orpington has a more pronounced comb and I was worried "she" may be a "he" but after much research, it appears the Buff Orpington pullets resemble the cockerels for a while when they are young.  You will need to wait until it is older to determine.  I'm holding out hope mine is a pullet!

  This is mine... Lucy.       A Buff Orpington hen.

 

 

Here's wishing us both luck our little chicks are hens!  :cd

Keep an eye on the right one, but I think pullets...
