BLRW can someone guess gender??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have 4 BLRW chicks that are 5 almost 6 weeks old. I am trying to guess gender but it's kind of hard with their rose combs. Also I read somewhere that you can also tell because the roosters will have sold color feathers on the back of their neck, not sure if that is true? Post your guesses below & thanks in advance!!

Chick #1




My guess is rooster

Chick #2



My guess rooster


Chick #3



not sure on this one

Chick #4



my guess is pullet but can anyone tell me why is has a dark black looking comb?

I cant tell from the pics although your birds are adorable I have been told that if you look for an egg vent that way you can sex them smeone also told me though this is probably no use now that the males get their flight feathers first

You can only do this in the first 24 hours after they hatch.
I would be cautious taking any more advice from whoever told you that.

I agree with you OP, roo, roo, possible pullet, pullet.

you are right about the 24 hour thing like I said that's no use now but as for being cautious taking advise from the person who told me that she's sexed most of my chicks and is almost always right

Chick #4 looks like your only pullet to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Chick #1 and chick #2 were roosters, #3 was a hen, and #4 died shortly after this.
