Some Bantys - Boys or Girls?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have 3 bantys.  This is our first time having bantams.  They are all 7 weeks old.  Guesses on pullets/cockerels?  Thanks in advance everyone! 

 

7 Week Old Gold Laced Sebright (Porkchop  - husband named this one):

 

 

7 Week Old Porcelain D'Uccle (Winter):

 

 

 

 

7 Week Old Mille Fleur D'Uccle (Surrey, short for Survivor - battling wry neck, splay leg and broken wing.  Was a farm store freebie to nurse back to health so a bit growth delayed):

Sebright looks like a pullet, porcelain d'uccle definitely a roo, and the mile fleur d'uccle looks like a pullet to me.

 

Glad you were able to nurse the little mille fleur back to health! They're such fun little chickens.

Our flock: 2 African Geese, 16 Bantam Cochins, 12 Silkies, 11 Mixed Breed Bantams, 6 Japanese Bantams, 6 D'Uccles, 1 OEGB, 1 white crested black polish, and 1 very confused pigeon.

Thanks @ChickenHermit.  We thought the porcelain was a pullet, but in the last week some wattles and reddening showed up.  :-(  He is a nice little bird so will will keep him.  Hopefully he stays sweet.  The little mille still has some issues.  Her legs still aren't quite right and her neck is a bit twisted.  We are still giving vitamins.  She gets around and eats well.  So I am hopeful she is a pullet since she has a forever home here with everything she has been through.

My D'Uccles have been sweet pretty much across the board, including the roos. Hopefully he'll stay non-aggressive!

 

She really does look like a pullet to me. My d'uccles are the same age, and I'm seeing a similar large difference between boys vs. girls on comb size/color and wattles.
