no.6 (such a cranky one )
Number 6 looks like your only cockerel to me.
Hope so... He so cranky! at such a young age too... I was wondering about number 7. What you think?
Is sexing as easy as waddles=rooster, even at that age? People act like sexing is so hard, but it seems like the cockerels get waddles at about two weeks, and pullets get them much, much later. Of course, there is also the large red combs, but those can be more variable per breed.
Wattles at this age do usually mean rooster, but not all breeds get wattles, or enough to show. So, you can use them to say a bird is male, but the lack of them doesn't necessarily mean it's female. Production bred birds seem to get combs and wattles faster than ornamental, giant or other breeds.
