Buckeye future roo or hen?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm new to Buckeye chickens and I know they are late bloomers. This guy/gal has me wondering what it is. It is almost 12 weeks old, but has more comb development than my other buckeye.  It also has a good bit of pink too. Anyone here have more experience sexing these guys? I'm thinking pullet, but you never know! Thanks!

I'm would say cockerel, but I'm no expert with the breed.

I'm thinking pullet because the Buckeye hens will have black tips on their tails and I'm seeing the black tips on it's tail. And it looks very similar to our Buckeye hen when she was that age. I'm not a big expert on this breed either but we have one and I remember when researching coming across the black tipped tail on pullets. Good luck! smile.png
