Do you think I have it right?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We picked out names today and I was curious if you all think I have the genders correct. The splash is 9 weeks old, the dominiques are 6 weeks, and the marans 5 weeks.

Ralph and Bernie are totally dudes, and also (mind me fo butchering it) Imogene? looks like it *could* be a dude, but it'd be a stretch. <3

Ralph and Bernie definitely look like roosters. I'd agree that Imogene might be. Doesn't look as prominently rooster in the pic, but the comb is a little large. It'll be easier to tell in a couple weeks! The other 3 definitely look like hens. Although that sometimes changes drastically between 5 and 10 weeks!

Thanks guys. The reason I think Imogene is a girl is based on her dark coloring, as I have read, dominique girls have more black than white. Also the perspective in her picture may be a bit off because she was moving toward me so her comb seems a touch bigger in the picture than in real life. She is the most friendly and docile of the bunch and loves to snuggle in our lap. I will keep updating as they grow.

Ralph, Bernie, and Imogene look like cockerels to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
