    I'm trying to get an idea of how many roos will need new homes. As near as I can tell, 3 BRs, the EE, and at least 50% of the Delawares are not going to be added to my laying flock. [​IMG]

    I wasn't able to get pics of all 14 Delawares, but from the ones I have you can at least tell me if my instincts are right:
    #1 -- big man on campus
    #2 -- pullet on the left, roo on the right
    #3 -- pullet (the most severely pecked at prior to moving to the coop)
    #4 -- Dumplin' (roo)
    #5 -- Johnny B (roo)
    #6 -- pullet
    #7 -- roo (he turned his head so his comb doesn't show, but it's almost as developed as the other two)

    I forgot to upload a shot of the EE. I'll try to add it tomorrow.

    I'd say your instincts are pretty accurate

    Ok, here's the EE -- 1st question: hen or roo? 2nd question: what color will s/he be?

    Does anyone have ideas about what color this EE is going to be? Or what sex? Anyone?

    Mine, that have feathered out white/grey like that, have started to show definite signs of maleness (saddle feathers & long black tail feathers).... [​IMG] One still has me guessing though. Somewhere on here, someone mentioned that if you have red or orange bars show up on the wings that it's a boy.
