Tracy has a good point. When someone raises one breed in particular for awhile, he/she just gets a sense of who is who. I'm fairly new to Delawares myself, but I do think I have a good number of pullets out of this fourteen. Generally, males have more color at the shoulder area than the females, so that's one way to guage the sex.
Hey, Tracy, what's your verdict on the chick in the first picture? That's the one I marked with green permanent marker.
Oh! they are wonderful. How did you get the close-ups?
I guess I just need to learn to use my camera better. Mine are doing sooooo good so far. I love the little BR's. The girls have those swishy little tails and the boys? are beginning to get them too. Big Mac is so quiet. I wonder if it could be a girl? The only dominate one is the large Br. I call Jake. If thats a girl it will be Jackie. LOL Jean
