Broilers from Privett - roo and a hen?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


Hi!

I have a batch of straight run broilers and some deleware hens that are about 8 weeks old.

I know what the delewares are....but the broilers I am thinking of the 8, there may be 3 hens. But I read that sometimes the comb is not necessarily the best indicator. Would they be fully developed enough to be sexully dimorphic at 8 weeks?


Attached are pics of the "alleged hen" and the "alleged too" and one of them together

The last picture is a hen and in the second photo the one in the front and the one in the back are roos. Center chicken in the first picture is a roo. The other is a hen.

Thank you! I thought so but I am thinking about holding back one or two hens to cross with my Easter Eggers to see if I get some sort of meat cross without having to buy chicks every few months.

Just free range all day if you can and restrict feed. My roo never could fertilize my eggs... although he tried.
