This is “Lydia” and Liam. “Lydia” is on the left and Liam is on the right.
My question is what gender is Lydia?
She grew a lot of her feathers faster than her 3 brothers. They are 3 weeks old. He is already showing signs as a boy. I’m really hoping that “Lydia” is actually a Lydia.
We do a fun hobby with a group of chickens and we treat them like
“Royalty”. So, we know exactly birthdates, deathdates, etc.
The mother is a Buff Cochin. (I think she has a little barred in her tbh).
The father is a mix of a (Black) OEGB and (Splash) Wyandotte Bantam.
(We actually don’t know where the barred came from)
I can’t exactly tell y’all the family of the Cochin because I didn’t raise her.
But if Lydia is a girl. Then, it’s my lucky day. All the “royals” give birth to are Boys. So, she would be the first girl
I am a rank amatuer when it comes to this, but going by comb development I would say Lydia is a pullet and Liam a cockerel, and I will hide and watch to see what smarter people have to say, to see how well I did.
