Please help? 3 sets of chicks about 5 weeks old.. Thanks ahead of time...
They're still young, but I vote boy on #1 because of the pink comb/wattle, #2 possible boy with the pink comb, and #3 as possible girl.
#2 looks like a cockerel because of the rather pink comb and wattles. #1 could be a cockerel, too, just a slower developing one. #3 is almost certainly a female. However, it is a bit young to tell for sure, so I would post new photos in a few weeks.
I think that number 3 is probably a female. I don't see much comb and wattle development on her. However, #1 and #2 have pretty large, red comb and wattles at this age. They also stand tall. So, I'm going to guess that they are males. Don't give up hope yet, though! Some females mature quicker than others, and develop combs and wattles early on.
Thanks everyone! And we think just a week later... 1&2 Roos and 3 girl.. The boys are already twice the size of the girl.. Think we will keep one of the boys and the other sell.. May wait until our next batch of eggs get delivered and see if we can't sell out a pair for breeding!! thanks again!
