Well, we were pretty unlucky our first time around as our twi chicks sold as pullets started crowing last week.

You guys were right when you sexed our brightly combed bird as a roo.

This time I am asking about three new chicks. 2 Have pea yellow combs and one has something that looks separated in two, pinkish.

Chick 1: small comb in one line, yellow in color. Feathers partridge like colouring.
Chick 2: bigger comb, very well defined pea row. Looks like a single row for now. This one is very curious.
Chick 3: Weird bomb decided in tho lines. Looks red on the picture but barely pink. Most skid dish of the bunch. Feathers blue and dark grey.

Chick 3 is slow to feather. Chick 2 has the biggest comb but still yellow. Ill post other pics this weekend. Maybe it will be clearer then!

They are 8 weeks now.


Pic 1: This one is getting color on his shoulder. Is this the dreaded rooster red on the shoulders? :(

Pic 2: This is chick 1: Quickest chick to feather


Pic 3: Chick 3This is the same guy that has the colouring on his shoulders. His comb is in one line, and a little pink.

Pic 4: Chick 3 This is the little blue guy. Red red comb, separated in two. Smaller chick, slow to feather as you can see.
