    Hi. I need yor opinions. :)

    I hatched these 3 little ones back on April 4-5 so the are almost 5 weeks old. They are black French copper maran which I am pretty sure is. Roo. A blue laced red Wyandotte which I thin is a hen and lastly the one I am a bit confused on due to the penciling in the feathers is a partridge Wyandotte. So what do y'all think. Roo...hen and partridge Roo??? I really wanted all hens but I always end up with :( [​IMG]

    I think youre right. The BCM looks like a cockerel. The Partridge Wyandotte looks like a pullet, and the BLRW Im leaning towards pullet, but I think I see some pink in that comb.

    Thanks Serenerity. Yes, the comb at the top is turning a bit red and it has small red wattles but it acts like a hen, more docile not nosey and was smaller and got feathers first so I was hoping it was a hen but I am getting a bit worried. I know that hen wyandottes end up having red comb and waddles but I did not think this soon. I will keep my fingers crossed.

    Thank you both. I sure hope the last 2 are hens I already have 4 to many roosters that I originally bought at a week old as hens. I now have raised them to fully grown rooster (or should I say, hens that all crow and have sickle feathers...lol) They are all beautiful roos but they fight each other so have them all separated. Thanks again.

    One other question for y'all. How can you tell the difference between a Rhoadbar and a Golden Cuckoo Maran Rooster. I have one and I am not sure what he is, but I am thining a Rhoadbar as he has white feathers in his sickle feathers. Can anyone please tell me. Thanks.

    Look at the color of the legs. A Golden Cuckoo Maran will Havre light colored legs like white or grayish. A Rhodebar should have yellow legs.
