    Silkie 13 wks old

    Straight run bantam bin at TSC. Almost all males. This one I thought was a pullet but now I'm not so sure. Haven't seen any attempts to crow. No comb/waddles. Super sweet. The buff I had I knew was a boy around 7 weeks. Had a massive comb and waddles and was crowing. They're now 13 weeks. Today...

    3 week old cochin?

    Few weeks ago I fell victim to TSC late season chick days. It appears my "assorted bantam" bin gave me a cochin. I was in the coop/brooder tonight checking over everyone and noticed tell-tale redness of a young cockerel. These babies are only 3 weeks old. I don't want to be right but "it" is a...

    Help Sexing!

    I have a broody hen who hatched 7 eggs from a mixed barnyard dozen. I ordered the dozen from a reputable farm that has purebreds, but the dozen I got is not from there carefully separated lines and breeds, so any autosexing down patterns are uncertain. I do know some of their partial genes...

    Anyone want to play pullet or cockeral?

    So,we have a mixed group of brahmas, an Easter egger,and 2 silver laced wyandotte. I'm 100% sure there is only one cockerel in the brahma lot and I'm pretty sure the EE is a pullet as well. But the SL Wyandottes have me stumped. Anyone want to guess?

    Barred Rock Cockerel or Pullet?

    Hey y'all, first post here (with a few more to come). I want a rooster for my flock. Specifically, I want a Barred Rock. So I went to Tractor Supply about a week and a half ago (I think). I saw that they finally were carrying straight run Barred Rocks! I already have 7 hens, and 5 pullets, so I...

    Brahma chick with bald spots

    We have 5 brahma chicks that I believe are about 8 or so weeks old. Four are gorgeous little fluff butts, and then there is this one... I don't see any signs of mites or parasites. Eating, drinking and pooping normally and quite fiesty. I thought I read somewhere that cockerals feather more...

    14 Week Silkies - Sexing Help?

    8 week Black Sizzle Silkie - Does Copper in Hackles say Rooster?

    I have an 8 week Black Sizzle Silkie. It has started to develop copper in its hackle feathers. Does this mean that it is a rooster?

    Mystery Turken number 2

    We are still figuring out the genders of the turkens we bought back in September. With help from folks here yesterday we pretty much confirmed one white and black chick is indeed a cockerel, and three of the others are girls. We do have one other mystery chick that we are on the fence about. The...

    Hi all, Purchased a mix of 15 “pullets” last August. They were sexed with a magnet on a string and we’ve already brought one rooster back, have at least 3 more with obvious tail plumes who are facing off and I’m wondering about these 2. The big one I saw grabbing a couple hen’s necks and I think...

    Sex of Two Supposed Roosters!

    These two are 3-4 months old and no crowing.... I was told they were roosters in a previous forum. Now I am not so sure, they don't have big combs. Some of my hens have larger and the big rooster (father) does chase them off. Any ideas? They were both hatched by my 8 year old hen... One: A...

    Rhode Island Roo?

    Good evening everyone! After last nights discussion over some of the memeber members of our flock and discovering that one I hadn’t suspected to be a Roo, I figured I should indeed inspect further. So with gritted yeetcuans squinted eyes I show you our next “Girl” Henny an almost 8 wk old...
