3-4 week old chicks - gender? Orps and Wyandottes. - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Hmm, you are right about the Buff Orpingtons, but I also think the Gold Laced Orpingtons look like cockerels.

I was wondering if I could get a little more guidance on gender? I'm fairly certain that off the buff orpingtons, we have one cockerel and one pullet. I think both the wyandottes might be pullets. The two gold laced orpingtons are beyond me though, I can't tell at all. 

 

 

Here is my probable rooster, staring me out, you can see the buff orp that I think is the pullet to the left. Am I right about those two?

 

 

 

 

Buff orp rooster again:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gold laced orp in the front here - any ideas? I can't tell at all.

 

 

 

Another of a gold laced orpington. Both the gold laced looks identical, 100% the same, so I suspect it is either two roosters or two pullets. 

 

 

 

I'll come back with photos of the wyandottes once they've managed to load on my computer, they are taking hours for some reason. 

 

Thanks :)

The buff with the big, red face is a cockerel. I'm also suspicious of the  gold laced wyandotte with the red face.
