Sight Sexing Barred Plymouth Rock Chicks at Hatch - Page 40

Can anyone tell the gender of these two bantam chicks? (I'm just guessing they are barred rocks - I don't really know).

 

 

 

The legs on both of them look the same. They are 4 weeks old, and the littler one almost died at a few days old but through some miracle pulled through.

Female female and likely a rooster. Though the legs are kind of dark for a boy.

The one with feathered legs is likely a langshan what I've found with those ones is once they are almost done feathering if there is still a yellow stripe down its chest/belly it's a girl. (This won't work for chicks with out chest feathers though smile.png )

This barred rock, Zeus, is 4 weeks old. From the info that you posted im assuming it's a Roo, correct me if I'm wrong... I'm very new to this 😬 Thanks in advance!

Do you think that the more important factor is the leg color? None of them have well defined head spots so I was worried they were all Roos!!! I was told by the lady that I got the eggs from that the ones with feathered legs are Cochin crosses.

I see I've only had 2 cochins so I'm not sure on how to check gender on those.

What I'm looking for in the head spots is if the spot looks like it's one spot or 2. No matter how bright or dark big or small the spot is. I haven't seen a rooster with completely black legs like your first 2. though they do sometimes have black patches.
