Thread Starter 

Hi

 

Just wondering if I could get some input into the sex of my 7 week old chicks. I have 15, these are my suspect cockerels:

 

1. Black Australorp 

 

 

2. Blue Australorp

 

3. Speckled sussex 1.                                                                  4. Light sussex

 

5. Speckled sussex 2. 

 

6. Plymouth Rock 1. 

 

7. Speckled sussex 3. 

 

8. Silver laced wyandotte

 

9. Barred rock 2. (suspect pullet - very runty)

 

 

THANKS :)

Here's another of the SLW. He is one of my most obvious boys - fighting etc. the light Sussex is also very feisty.

Haha that's okay smile.png I have 6 others which are pullets which I haven't photographed! I just wanted to be sure before I start the cull because it's getting too cramped in the coop for 15!

And you're pretty confident with the light Sussex? He's my only iffy one

You have a handful of boys there! The only possible pullet I'm seeing is the last barred rock.

I agree with Mountain Peeps,  that's the only pullet I can see.
