    My friend has 6 chickens and one swan that could use some sexing. I think I the sex of some but not all. The first 3 up are silkies. They are a little dirty from the goats trying to eat them.

    #7 this pretty ones age is unknown. He has been at the rescue for 2 years due to a badly broken wing. It is about 5 foot tall with the head streatched out. I would also guess weight at 40-50 lbs. What breed of swan and what sex?

    I would say 4 is a cockerel but not a seabright. Maybe an old english game? Number 5 is a golden seabright. I am not sure on sex because it should have a rose comb. Also, combs on pullets are very small. Good luck

    Thanks so far guys. I am still new at this. That's why when she asked I posted them here. I am thinking that because of the size of the swan that it is a male but I could still be wrong.

    Any more thoughts?
