    I have posted on these before, but am now breaking the posts up as the chicks get older instead of listing all 8 together.

    This week I have Evelyn and Paris.

    I think Evelyn is a EE rooster, but she/he looks awfully feminine. I know very little about EE's, tho I am trying awfully hard to learn. She has what I believe is a pea comb.
    I know I will probably have to wait until SHE (haha) is older to confirm gender, but hoping more experienced people than I might be able to tell already.

    This is Paris. Sexing "her" is a little more important to me than the others because I have a woman who would like to come buy her from me, provided that Paris, is infact a pullet. I thought roo because of the comb...but as SHE ( [​IMG] ) gets older, I am starting to think pullet. ALSO,..any guesses on whether Paris' momma would be my production red, or my golden comet (daddys columbian rock)?

    Sorry, but both look like roosters to me.


    As far as Paris goes I would think that it is out of your Production red rather thant the sexlink. Because s/he has the deeper red coloring like the produciton red.

    could the columbian rock be Evelyns Daddy as well?
    I'm leaning towards both cockerals as well.....

    Quote:Yes, my roos were Columbian Rocks (They were sold as Delawares which they definitely, were not...they were hatchery Delawares ie..columbian rocks) Evelyn had the same daddy...well, at least the same breed daddy, as Paris.

    I think Evelyns mom is my white EE.


    Okay sooo...both boys. Ha, I'm not surprised.
    Thank you everyone, you may come out from under your chairs now [​IMG]
