    Hey, this was our first time raising chicks, we bought 6 just hatched Frisian Gulls from Greenfire farms stock with the intention of keeping 2 pullets and selling the rest. They are about 6 weeks old now and doing great, I think we ended up with 5 pullets and 1 cockerel, but I'm far from an expert. We will be looking to sell any Cockerels and extra pullets that we don't have room for but want to be sure what we have. Anyone here have any experience with this breed that can help with sexing?

    Thanks[​IMG]

    Very pretty birds but, I never heard of them. At first I thought they would be some kind of seagull. Think the time change has affected my common sense

    You've definitely got the one cockerel. Nobody else is looking too cockerel like. They are gorgeous. Have they been very predator savvy?

    Thanks for the help, so far they haven't had to be so thats yet to be seen. We're in the city limits and until now we've mostly had hawks and the occasional stray dog, but we keep have doors on all our coops and keep them locked in at night.

    I just recently started with the breed. I was looking for a review, but haven't seen much. What are your thoughts about them. So far, for me, they are just adorable balls of fluff - and one of them "yells" a lot!

    I absolutely adore mine. I've got golds, lemons, and silvers. They're my favorites!! I also believe you've got one roo there!
