    My Buff Rooster and Red Cochin pullet hatched their first clutch...there are nine babies, and this morning their wing feathers began to show. All nine are buff. Does this indicate sex? Or maybe the color mixes?? I'm just surprised to see all nine having the same color....If Ese (pronounced essay) produced nine cockerels...I'm threatening to caponize him! Thanks so much for any info

    Well... I can't tell you about the color thing... but if they end up all roosters, time to turn your hen into stew. The hen determines gender in birds. [​IMG]
