We think they are all Pullets but cant be sure! Thoughts?
How old are they? Middle and left look like pullets. Right is iffy but rooster-ish depending on age.
I agree with Queen Misha.
We think they are 7-8 weeks old. They were given to us by our local farm supply when they didn't sell. It wasnt clear. Unfortunately this has left us wondering all along. The one on the right has always been larger than the other two which could definitely mean roo I suppose. I sure think they are gorgeous! Thanks for the reply!
If they are 7-8 weeks, I'd say all pullets then. Partridge is a dimorphic variety, meaning that males and females are different colors. By 7-8 weeks, cockerels should have begun to develop large amounts of black in the breast and wings. These all appear to have lovely brown-red female coloring. I'd say the little bird on the right is simply a bit of a masculine pullet, given her relatively large comb.
So interesting! Thank you so much for your knowledge and kindness! I can't wait to watch her keep growing!
