    I've posted on these guys before, got Delaware as breed, I just want to make sure and if I do have 2 girls and 1 boy or if they are 3 boys, or 2 boys,1 girl. Thanks in advance.


    Rooster, I'm sure

    The first one you think to be a Delaware is a Sussex. And a boy.

    The others are Delawares. And so far I see a bunch of boys, but maybe the one you believe to be a pullet is. . . Depends on how old they are.

    I'm not sure what hatchery, this woman had bought 150 hatching eggs and she had more than she expected hatch, so I bought some from her. I was so hoping the beautiful mess was a pullet. [​IMG] They are anywhere from 14-20 weeks old???? She had so many ages running around, she wasn't sure who was what age but on Aug. 13 they were app. 6-8 weeks old. Everyone looked exactly alike when they were younger, then Brewster just went into to overdrive on growing and left the other 2 behind.

    Month and a half ago

    [​IMG] Sweet thing

    And Brewster wasn't that much of a worry then.....just knew he was a rooster and was either Sussex or Delaware.


    I don't know if this helps or not .
