Hi all, I traded in my confirmed cockerels for a hen and a pullet. This hen, now named Leda, is the #1 suspect in whose-eggs-did-the-man-put-in-the-incubator. I think she is a silkie? 5 toes and friendly. Do you call that color buff in silkies? Sorry for the picture quality, I'm using my phone... And this barred darling, Europa, is a sibling (I think) to Helen-turned-Troy. Pure mutt. Look at the fluff on the noggin' - where did that come from? The only polish on the property is too young to have done any breeding. If Leda is the mama and the barred rock roo is the papa, do genetics insist that Europa is not a pullet but a cockerel? I can post better pictures if we need them to determine her gender. Her comb is nothing like Troy's and there has been no crowing or rooish behavior from her. Best guess is that she is 9 weeks old. And the third (blue) chick you can see in the shots is my sweet gimp, Io. She still looks pullet to me. Edited to replace photos with better resolution of the same phone-pictures.
