    Colombian blacktail ? Confusion ?

    This is my first time with sex links - I bought six Columbian blacktail (white Sussex x Rhode Island Red) eggs from a farm that I have used many times. I ended up having two pulleys out of that that I sexed at hatch. However they are now about 15 weeks old, and one is presenting in my mind how a...

    Sexing silkies

    I have a beautiful bearded Silkie who I'm guessing is around 4 months old. I haven't seen any major rooster like behaviour and no crowing. However while drying in front of the fire today I noticed they are developing a rather upright stance and straighter tail. They are also bigger than the...

    Is Chick Khan boy or gal?

    Was sold this chick as a Barred Rock hen. It definitely not a Barred Rock, I suspect either black or red sex-link. Real question is, is this a cockerel? Pics at days 2 & 4, 2 wks & now at 19 weeks.

    Sexin barnevelder

    This is my first time raising barnevelder chicks. They are from two genetic lines which also doesn’t help with sexing them against each other. I was sure they were both pullers from the speed they both were feathering up and the length of their wings at 10+ days. Wanted to see others opinions as...

    Swedish blue sexing - Bill me - drake by mistake

    Hey guys! I just read that Swedish Blue drakes have green bills, and now I am concerned one of my Swedes is a boy because one has a green tint to their Bill. Can anyone confirm or deny that this green tint is indicating a male duck?

    Pullet or Cockerel? 13 Week Old Speckled Sussex

    Can anyone give their thoughts on sex of this chicken? See pics. The saddle feathers to me scream roo, but at the same time its comb and wattles are really underdeveloped for 13 weeks. I've got another confirmed roo that has a massive pink comb and big dangly wattles at this age (different breed...

    Easter Egger Sexing - w. Pictures (4-5 Wks Old)

    As my little Easter Eggers are growing, I'm starting to worry that a few of these little buggers may be cockerels. I've heard that looking at the ridges/combs are a good sign for determining sex but since this is my first flock, I figured I'd take it to the experts! These three are the only...

    Help sexing SLW AND GLW

    Ordered all of them as presexed female one day old chicks. Have a feeling there’s a few roosters in the mix but they’ve got me stumped. Maybe a trained eye can help. My EE’s and faverolles were a breeze to sex; these two breeds, not so much. The gold laced Wyandottes are 11 weeks today and came...

    11wk old Ameraucana/EE, Is this a rooster?

    We got him/her 11 weeks ago as a day-old chick along with 2 other chicks, one being another ameraucana (may be an EE, I can't tell, but we were told ameraucana). Since we got them, this one I'm asking about has been much more aggressive. The only clear signs that she may be a rooster are her...

    Pullets or roos?

    Hi everyone 👋 so we have four flock members, 2 faverolles (salmon and bircher) and two warrens/goldlines. I’m wondering whether the goldlines are roos or pullets. I spotted what looks like the beginnings of a thin black tail feather on one yesterday and thought I should check. They hatched on...

    Do I have 2 Roosters!? 12 week old Wyandotte & Orpington

    Hello, I am new to backyard chicken farming. We purchased 7 “female” newborn chicks in April (born 4/1/20). They are now about 3 months/12 weeks old, all different breeds. We received an “extra” Wyandotte that is I believe is a rooster. Another one that I purchased, a black Orpington, is also...
