Help with breed and gender!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
I'm pretty sure we have a few Roos in the bunch, but wanted to see what everyone else thought. Thank you!


Possible OE rooster


Cochin hen

Silver sebright rooster. This little guy is aggressive and hops on the other chicks.



Possible silver penciled Cochin. Can't tell if it's a rooster or hen. Super nice.

Thank you everyone for your help!!

The first is a rooster, the mottled Cochin looks like a pullet for now, the Seabright is a rooster, and the last Cochin I'm undecided, another week or two and you should know for sure on the cochins, if their combs turn pink they are roosters. If they are pullets the combs will remain orange until around 4 months.

I agree.

Your OE is a rooster, no doubt.

Your Sebright is also a rooster.

 

Both the Cochins look to be hens. If bantam Cochin (you didn't say), roos get really big red combs fast. You don't mention age, but I'm guessing 6 to 8 weeks. Roos would normally be showing by then...another month you'll know for certain if either Cochin is male, but I think they both look female.
