    I have a few 5 week-old chicks I need to verify gender and/or breed. They were ordered from Ideal.

    This chick is supposed to be a she. Did Ideal sex it right?


    Is this little darling an EE? It was supposed to be a female Gold Sex Link, which I think it's not. [​IMG]


    And this handsome Black Langshan is supposed to be a roo. Please, confirm that it is, pretty please??


    Your help is greatly appreciated. This is one AWESOME place to learn about chickies.

    pic 1 - Probably an EE. Definitely a rooster with such a bright red comb so young...

    pic 2 - Does it have a muff/beard? If it does then an EE. If not, may be a White Jersey Giant.

    pic 3 - 99% sure it's a rooster (it's got quite a comb already!).

    The top 2 are EEs... the wheaton is a roo and the white is a pullet, the langshan is a roo.

    Well, I'm relieved that my Black Langshan is a roo. I soooo wanted another BL rooster. My other one died this past spring. He was such a wonderful flock manager.

    OTOH, the EE roo does not make me overly happy. He was supposed to be a she, but when I saw how red the comb was becoming, I thought, I bet she's a he. But, if I can manage 3 roos with 34 hens, I might keep him. I have some Black Copper Marans he might help me get a few olive eggers from, maybe.

    Thanks, bunches, everyone for your IDs.
