Roosters or Hens! SOS! Pictures Attached

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have three chickens that are two months old and I'm wondering if anyone can help me tell if they are pullets or cockerels. This morning I heard a noise that sounded like a kazoo coming from the coop and im pretty certain that means at least one is a cockerel.

The two red ones are golden comets and were supposed to be sexed by color upon hatching. The black one is an australorp and the one I suspect is my cockerel. Which is a shame because "Pearl" is the most friendly of the group.

Anyhow posted here are some pictures of my flock. The photos with the two chickens together are my suspected cockerels and the single chicken by the coop door planter is what I think is a pullet.

Much appreciated! [IMG][IMG][IMG]

Hi and welcome to BYC smile.png

It looks like only 1of your pics loaded, and that one is likely a pullet. A clear shot of the head (showing the comb) can really help.

              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

I haven't seen a lot of Australorps, you might try posting in the Australorp thread and maybe someone can help you out

You can also post photos at  "what breed or gender is this."   The black one appears to be a pullet.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
