Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by athelsel, Apr 17, 2016.
Are all the birds the same age and, what is that age? This is key in evaluating certain characteristics.
1 - couple breed options, white rock and white leghorn among them - leaning leghorn -- if under 12 weeks, cockerel
2 - easter egger - color/pattern says cockerel, can you get a good comb shot?
3 - black sex link pullet
4 - possibly black australorp, what color are the bottoms of the birds feet -- looks like a pullet, though I'm on the fence about how red the face looks - again, age is a factor
5 - buff orp, pullet
x2 with this.
They are about 7-8 weeks old. Gotta weed out roosters unfortunately!
At 7-8 weeks #1 is definitely a cockerel.
#2 is pinging the ol' roo-dar pretty hard, see the brick red patch on the wingbow, that is characteristc of a cockerel. Doesn't seem to cooperate much for comb shots, when you look at it are you seeing one row of "peas" or three showing?
I take it that is #4's head peeking in there in the background? If so, it does look awfully pink, but there is not a lot of comb/wattle development going on.
agree with Ol Grey Mare & donrae
i know this is ancient.. but i just got back on and They were BOTH roos.
