7 Weeks, Boys or Girls?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Copper Maran, Jersey Giant, Americana. 
Sold to me as pullets as chicks, any guesses on gender of the 3? Really hoping for all girls, but one rooster is doable, just not preferred of course!

 

Jersey

 

Americana

 

Copper Maran(about a week or two older)

I would say roo for the Jersey because of the posture and larger comb, but pullet for the other two.

I'm really hoping that's the case, although the EE has quite a strange pattern for a pullet....i'll be so mad if i get 2 roosters lol

Do you know what breeds have contributed to it? (the EE)

The Giant is a cockerel, the Easter Egger is a cockerel, the Marans is a pullet. 100% sure.

The EE is most definitely a male, red patches in the wing area prove that; pullets don't get those.

 

 

Hey, Justino, don't I know you from years back? Haven't seen you around lately, or maybe I'm thinking of another member, pre-BYC re-vamp. Sorry, if so. If it's really you-you, then HI! :D
