Hen or Roos????

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have 5 4 (almost 5)week old babies and there are three that are questionable.



I'm fairly certain "Loretta Lynn" is actually a Johnny Cash since she/he was a black sex link and looks nothing like my other 2 black sex links.




Here's my first Dixie rainbow "Dolly Parton"




And my other Dixie "Tammy Wynette"

These two are a little trickier as they seem to be a newer breed and can't find much info on them. Not seeing huge waddles yet but those combs are questionable and they're huge! But not sure if that's just the breed.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

They are all roosters.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Oh boy(s)!

For future reference, with black sex links you can tell at hatch - females have a solid colored head and males have a dot on their head (the dot indicating they will be barred).  This is the beauty (and point) of sex links, they hatch with a definitive difference in color/pattern that is "linked" to their gender so you can sex them on sight.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Yeah these are our first flock and trusted TSC with the "pullets" label on the black sex link. Should be easy right??? Lol. Didn't know about the white spot on the boys heads until I started researching and when he turned a completely different color and that comb started getting bigger and bigger I knew! The rainbows still kinda stump me though as I've read mixed thoughts so I'm not giving up on them!
