New babies, roo or pullet?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

On 26th April, it is a big day for us. We got 6 chicks out of 6 eggs. 100%:celebrate

 

But the last one is too weak to survive. It couldn't stand up. And after one night, it is gone. Now, we have 5 barred rock chicks. Let's start to guess what they are. Roos or pullet? I will update their growing pics by week, if they are still with us.:jumpy

 

I think this is a girl #1

Guess this is girl #2.

The front one is boy #1?

The middle one is boy #2?

The front one is the smallest of all. It has dark feet, but a big white spot on its head. So, it is the hardest one to tell.

At this age, flipping a coin will be as accurate as any guess you can make.

My thought is, those aren't barred Rocks. They're barred something, from the white headspot, but those white markings are all over the place. they're some kind of mixed breed birds, making sexing by the usual rules of barred birds a wash. You'll just have to wait for combs, etc around 6 weeks.

I agree. I was looking at the photos thinking, "Wow, those are really colorful BRs!"

They are near 6 weeks now. The first one is Roar. The other is Si. Any thoughts?
