Hi - any idea of the gender of this 2-3 month old - thinking possibly a silkie/Potch Kokoek cross?
Male. Females don't get a red comb until close to laying - at least 4 months old.
Looks like a cockerel to me.
On your other thread, the hen was much older than three months. So this one probably is too. I think it's a point of lay pullet.
Tx so much.. Just going on what we've been told .. We've only had them for two weeks.
Can you get a clearer picture of this one? If they are over four months, then I'll be fully on board the white is a pullet. This I can't see the tail clear enough.
They are still a bit skittish to quite difficult to get a shot! Hope this one is a bit better!
Yeah, the body looks feminine. So I'm guessing they're older than you were told. Maybe they'll lay an egg soon and you'll know for sure.
So you're thinking 4 months + ?
Yes. How big are they? Compared to the size of grown hens?
