Okay...since it is always easier to sex the other farmers chickens, I present these two hatchery quality Barnevelders purchased on June 4th and 6th at approximately 1 week of age, so about a June 1st latest hatch date (probably a little earlier)....so that would make them 5 to 6 weeks old (maximum) I am hoping for a Barney and a Velda...but I think I may have a Barney and Veldan. First time with Barnevelders....what do you all think? 2 roos? Or am I lucky that the one obvious roo has a mate in what might be a pullet, as in not as obviously a roo as Barney? Thanks LofMc Pretty sure this one is a roo (Barney) Now Velda or Veldan...I can go either way...think it is a roo, but may be overly pessimistic...it definitely has a smaller and yellow comb than the pink/red of Barney. It also has more pattern than Barney (who I think is showing the elongated lines on the roo's wings). It also had a different breast down color than Barney (I forget who had the cream and who had the darker beige). It also has finer legs than Barney. Lucky for pullet? And both of them for comparison Thanks!
