Might be a roo, but not sure...
the picture is a bit blurry, and we can't really get a good look at his/her comb or wattles...it kinda looks like a girl, but the stance kinda says boy...do you have any other photos?
Someone remind me, is ten weeks old enough for hackle/saddle feathers?
Im gonna say girl for now...
From the picture it looks like a pullet. I'm not sure if 10 weeks is old enough for saddles/hackles... It's usually easiest to tell by the comb/wattles at this point. Can you get a good shot of them for us?
Thanks for the replies guys! I am sorry for the blurriness. I'll try to get a better one to post...
the wattles are really red for 10 weeks i think its a cockerel but i cant see the comb to be for sure
I don't think saddle/hackle feathers start coming in notably until later (>12wks)... but this is from me, and my araucana boys both sprouted them around 7 weeks. I'm gonna say it depends on the breed and what kind of steroids they're being fed - apparently mine got the right stuff!
If the wattles are that big and red already, I'm going to say, cockerel. Sorry
I too, would like more photos...but I agree-big waddles for a 10 week old= cockerel! Stands like a roo too.
I'm pretty sure it's a cockerel but it's hard to tell because of how blurry the picture is.
Looks like a boy to me.. Wattles are too red and distinguished..
