Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by kristen9907, Mar 5, 2017.
Can anyone tel gender of my 3 golden comets, 2 RIR, and 3 black australorps?
Too early to tell right now. You should be able to tell in about a month. Post some pics of them then if nobody else can tell what gender it is right now!
Ok, thanks. I know that the golden comets were sexlink and so I didn't know if anyone could tell by color. The RIR looked like they were getting a black line down the back of their head but I didn't know how true that is for gender, or if it should have been a defined line by now.
The Golden Comets, being a sex-linked hybrid, are all pullets. The others are too young to sex.
The comets are female. Sex linked means the sex of the bird is linked to the color, so they're easy-peasy. gold for females, white/silver for males. Since your birds are gold, they're female
the others aren't so easy. Your're going to have to wait until about 6 weeks to be sure. Large, plump red combs will be your tell tale sign.
Thanks for all of the responses!
