Phoebe is like a gray ish lavender colour. We thought it was a boy. We were hoping it wasn't though. Thanks.
Phoebe is maybe three months? Around there. Probably more give than take on that ones age.
As far as EEs, feather pattern has been the only consistent way of sexing. I've read people who say their rooster has a single defined row in his pea comb while a female has 3 defined rows. But hackle feathers on a male will be splotchy whereas a females feathers will be uniform.
[/IMG] and this is Betty. My easter egger. Any clues as per her gender? Same age as Pheobe.
One didn't load.
You have things backwards on the comb -- for pea combed EE it is accurate that cockerels show 3 and pullets 1. There are several different factors that can be evaluated, each at different ages.
I was trying to say people have given an example of a single row male to say sexing by comb isn't always accurate.
