Updated pics: Pullets or Cockerels?

post #1 of 4

Here's the big kids group shot (9-10weeks old):

I know about 3 of the cockerels (the blCk one started crowing at 7 weeks), but what about the jubilee? Here are some solo shots:




Now for the 4-week babies. I'm curious about the white Easter Egger and the SLW.




Thanks so much for your guesses! I have to decide who stays and who goes. 😢

Comparing the Jubilee and the lightest one to the other chickens in the picture I'm leaning towards cockerel, but could be wrong. Their combs and waddles aren't as big or as red as the 2 cockerels, but they're not as small as the pullets. Maybe someone else can give you a better idea.
As for the EE, I'm not sure, and I don't see a Silver Laced Wyandotte. Are you talking about the Barred Rock? If so, I would say pullet.

Thanks for your opinions! I do think you're right that it's a Barred Rock and not a SLW. I've been leaning that way for a while, but it came from a barnyard mix with both and I was just hoping it would be a SLW. 

 

We've always thought the Jubilee was a pullet and the white splash was a cockerel, it's just this week they started looking similar in the comb/wattles! I was suspicious of those back feathers too...I thought they might be pointier like rooster saddle feathers? Obviously I'm new at this. :)

I zoomed in the EE's pics. Anyone want to weigh in?
