Suspected roo -
Two of the other girls -
It's so hard to be patient! And it's only an issue because I absolutely cannot have a rooster where I live, although I really wish I could!
I just picked up my crew today :) All about 9 weeks old. Roos aren't a problem here, but curiosity and all :)
Chick 1 - Dark Brahma. Thinking pullet.
Chick 2 - Speckled Sussex #1 - Thinking pullet.
Chick 3 - Speckled Sussex #2 - Thinking pullet.
Chick 4 - Blue Laced Red Wyandotte - Thinking roo?
I'm really inexperienced, but it is my understanding that your splash rooster (non-barred) over a barred hen produces solid blue color females and blue barred boys with a white dot/spot on back of head. Based upon that, you should be able to tell the boys from the girls. Looks like several have barring. They are beautiful!!!
Update on these 12. They are now mostly 5 weeks old with a few being a little older. I also had read the information above about blue/barred, but was also told if my birds are mixes they might not breed true to these specifications. And I have some that seem not to fit those traits. Tell me what you guys think! Here they are now:
Chick 1: Blue Chick (While totally blue in color..."she" has an awfully large and red comb to be a girl)
Chick 2: Blue Chick (Possible Barring)
Chick 3: Wheaton Easter Egger
Chick 4: Blue Chick
Chick 5: Blue Chick
Chick 6: Blue Chick
Chick 7:Splash Easter Egger (front)
Chick 8: Easter Egger
Chick 9: Easter Egger
Chick 10: Lavender Easter Egger
Chick 11: Blue Chick (Possible Barring)
Chick 12: Blue Chick
