    I hatched these babies from Green Family Farm stock. They are so pretty.
    Can you help with the sexing? They are 9 weeks old.
    Thanks!

    Looks like the one on the left in the top photo is a girl and the one on the right a roo. I could be wrong, but they look like mine did at that age.

    Thank you thank you thank you!!
    I am getting better at this sexing, I think. LOL


    Do they look good, or am I biased? Seriously, are they healthy looking? Look like good stock? I have nothing to compare it to, except other pictures on here. I have a really pretty Rooster so I would like to add about 8-10 hens to hang with him.
    THANKS

    They need to be mature to judge them against the standard of perfection.

    They look healthy to me.

    MissPrissy is right. [​IMG]

    1-may be two pullets, but I', guessing on right is rooster and left is pullet?
    2- pullet(cute one!) [​IMG]
    3-pullet
    4-rooster
    5-pullet
    6-rooster


    the first pic of the pair may be pullets.....since the one on the right doesn't really have a red comb...? but I may be wrong. depending on size, looks like rooster. but with color, it looks like pullet.

    not bad, though! 3 pullets and 3 roosters!(unless the first pic has two pullets, then you would have 2 roosters and 4 pullets) [​IMG]

    Cute pics! [​IMG]

    Thanks all! I appreciate your opinion!! I want to get good at this stuff and am trying to build up a nice stock of BO's, RIR and White Rocks. Oh and my baby silkies too. They have all stolen my soul- the brats
