Pullet or cockerel? Much redder comb/wattles than the rest of our 11-week-olds.
@ Gray Farms Thanks. Never had one before but that's what I thought....
I was told this was a Delaware but it looks too black on the back compared to other pictures on here. He/she is almost 6 weeks old. I am hoping he is not a roo because I did get a RIR roo this year (not on purpose), and he is gorgeous. Is this a Delaware, and is this a roo?
Yes, beautiful Delaware, but looks like a cockerel to me too. Pretty boy!
No, it's not a Delaware, and so far to me (I'm no genius) it looks like a pullet. Still a little early to tell from photos alone.
@Peppercorngal Thanks! He's actually been (so far) polite for a boy but he is starting to hold himself apart from the rest of the flock and watch warily when people enter the run. Even though he seems nice and is beautiful, we're not allowed to have roosters so he's gotta go. As each day passes, I'm more and more positive he's a he. Plus I've got two "male" votes from this forum.
I hope you are right. Any idea on breed? These were at the farm the day I picked her up:
Delaware, Buff Orpington, Easter Egger, Olive Eggers, Black Maran Sexlink, Salmon Faverolle, Guinea, Olive Eggers, Blue Red Laced Wyandotte, Crested Cream Legbars, Black Copper Maran, Lavender Orpington, Silkie, Frizzle
Well, we can tell that it's not a Delaware, not an Orpington, not EE, not Olive Egger, not black maran, too black to be Salmon Faverolle, obviously not a guinea, COULD be a splash lavender orpington, not a silkie or a frizzle. Did we narrow it down?
But he's so pretty! I actually had 5 Delawares including one rooster. Unfortunately the rooster was MEAN! I don't hold with mean roosters so I sold him. I still have the girls! Maybe you can post him on this forum in your area and find him a good home. You are not that far from Morgan Hill and Gilroy where there are plenty of farms. Good Luck
