Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by HollyRock, Sep 9, 2016.
Hello! We bought 8 chicks July 8th, different breeds and now we are trying to figure out the gender.
The first one looks like a cochin cockerel, the second one looks to be a silkie mix cockerel, the third one looks like a rhode island red but hard to tell without a picture of its comb and wattles, the fourth one looks like a silkie pullet, the fifth looks like a French black copper maran pullet, and the sixth looks to be a rhode island red cockerel, and the last one looks like a polish cockerel if I had to guess. You will know for sure when the start crowing or laying! Beautiful flock!
all pullets but the last two
Are they all the same age?
pullets except the last two
the first bird confuses me. She looks like a Cochin pullet, but she'd have to be quite a bit older than 10 weeks. More like 4-5 months, with that much comb.
The second also has a pullet look, but older than stated.
third looks like a pullet, stated age
PASS on the Silkie
Can we get a comb shot? First glance looks like a pullet, but there's red coming in on the back/wings that makes me think possibly male. And confirm age, it also looks older.
Cockerel, of stated age.
I think the Polish is a cockere from the coloring, but a head shot showing the shape of the top hat would help. So would a comb/wattle shot.
x2 on the Cochin. Mine's 2 months older and doesn't have nearly as developed comb and wattles.
I should have mentioned the breeds we have. 2 Cochins (black and buff), Polish, silkie, American, Swedish, cream legbar and a Maran. The 2 Cochin's were bought from a different place so they may be 11 weeks old.
One pic didn't upload, it's my sweet little buff cochin named Lovie. I really hope this one is a pullet
