12 week old fighting? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I would assume that any that red already are roosters. Wyandotte are trickier because the hens get pink early too. At 12 weeks though I think only roos are red. You may have to start separating them out.

At 12 weeks, ten birds in 32 square feet is pretty tight for space. Add in the hormones starting to flow from all those cockerels, and that's why you're having issues. If you're not keeping roosters, you need to go ahead and sell the males off asap.

Yea, I separated the blue laced Wyandotte Roos and I'm selling them.. I think those are the only Roos.. I'll post pictures of the gold laced tomorrow and see what you guys think, thank you so much for all your help!

These I'm unsure, the front one does look like it, hopefully someone else gives their opinions. I can't see the back one clearly either.

I would wait a week or too, I'm leaning towards pullets based on feathering, roosters would have dark coming in on the top of the wings and wouldn't have consistent lacing like yours do.
