Genders on bantams?

    TSC had assorted bantams on sale for 50 cents apiece this spring, so you'd better believe we snatched up as many as possible! :lol: While I've identified their breeds, I'm starting to get a little curious if any are looking particularly cockerel-y at this point now that everybody's 5-6 weeks old. :) I apologize in advance for the blurry pics.....things were too busy today to get good shots.

    Porcelain d'Uccle - I'm definitely thinking pullet on this one. We've had 5 of this breed before to compare to. :D

    Mille Fleur d'Uccle - also pullet?

    Black-Tailed White Japanese - ????

    Black Cochin bantam (with strange wings) - also cockerel!

    Silver Duckwing OEGB - pullet?

    Hey Alex! I think you are right on guesses and ones with question marks all look like pullets too in my opinion.

    Hey, Isabel! :hugs
    I really appreciate your input! :) It would be SO nice if all except the Cochins and maybe Buckeye are pullets. :love

    The cockerels I can see now are the ones you already guessed :)
