    I have 3 chicks that are now 7 weeks old. Mama is Black Australorp (but didn't lay any of the eggs) I have Australorp and BO hens and a BO rooster. 6 weeks before the eggs were layed i culled 2 SLW roos (they were mean).

    1. Can you tell if they are pullet or roo?
    2. What mix each one is?

    I can't really be of much help, but perhaps you should enlarge the photos

    It's not working [​IMG] I will have to crop first and then upload them all over again. I tried to crop and enlarge from photobucket, but I guess I don't know how to do it right.

    I'll take a wild guess!

    #1 is a hen (BO/ Australorp)
    #2 is a hen (SLW/ Australorp)
    #3 is a hen (SLW/ Australorp)

    I could be wrong, but these are my guesses!

    I agree.​

    I 3rd what they say. Amazing how chickens can hold "rooster goo" for so long-I've known it to happen.

    everyone seems to agree that they are hens. That makes me very happy. [​IMG] I really thought I may have to use them for chicken and noodles. [​IMG]
    I was really wondering if it was possible those could be part SLW. The part BO is really pretty, so I am glad everyone thinks its a hen.

    Quote:6 weeks later and they could still be the dads. [​IMG]

    I have separated my birds according to breed. I was planning to wait 4 weeks before trying to hatch because I had read is it 3 weeks that hens can retain this "rooster goo". [​IMG] Now, I'll have to wait 8 weeks to just be sure. [​IMG]


    Your chicks are truly unique and beautiful! [​IMG]
