Should I paint the coop blue?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey there.  These chicks are about 5 weeks old now, and I'm on the fence about these two Blue Laced Red Wynadottes.  

 

I can take more pictures, but I know this breed is one of the trickier to sex until they are closer to juvenile age.  Let me know what you all think please!  The Splash ( I think that's what you call the lighter one) is Misty, and the other is Pikachu -my kids named them.  Isn't Pikachu gorgeous?

 

I'm asking because if I get more than one cockerel, I need to see about getting rid of one, as I only have a small flock. 

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

Oh and here are my other two, not the best picture, but I think both of them are Pullets.  Ophelia and Zelda.  Don't worry, my knees were right there at the edge of the table in case they fell, but they didn't.  :)  

 

Mom to 2 boys, a spoiled kitty-Tessa, a goldfish named DanTDM, 2 RIR -Hen Solo and Eggitha Christie, our EE Jellybean, our Australorp- Darth Cluck, our Black Sumatra called Hera.  Welcome to our new babies all BLRW- Misty, Pikachu, Zelda, and Ophelia.    RIP to Carly, Sam, and Camilla ( Hawks suck......) and Barbie Q ( natural)

Id say cockerel for both first ones
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))
