    I'm back again with fuzzy cell phone pics(sorry) They will be 5 weeks this Saturday. They are WLH crossed with barred barnyard papa....any guesses or is it too soon still?

    I think your guesses are spot-on. I would also keep an eye on the pullet (?) in the first picture. It looks like there is some red at the comb base, but it could be the picture that's making it look that way.

    I agree w/Blue. Sometimes it's hard to tell w/leghorns bc they're fast to mature and both male and female have large combs but I would say due to the cross and all the redness in the combs your guesses are right on.

    Quote:Well.....if my guessing is correct (and I understand it's not 100% accurate at this age) it looks like I may have 5 girls and 2 boys:) Not too shabby if I say so myself [​IMG]
    I started only planning to have 5 to 6 laying hens and in just 7 short months here I am with 18 birds and plans to get more in the spring!! How does that happen??
