    I need help. I have 4 Jersey Giant Pullets that are 15 weeks....one turned out to be a rooster and another one is looking more like a rooster. I am not sure if the second one is just a well developed hen or a cockerel that is subservient to the other roo. They were all hatched on the same day. I am posting a picture of my roo then I will post the pictures of my maybe hen... I honestly can't tell for sure. She looks different than my hens but different from my roo. They are close to laying so I don't want any issues with two Roos and two hens... Any advice would help....[​IMG]

    The one in your last picture is the questionable one? I think that is a pullet.

    Thank you, she is the one I am concerned about. She/he does not crow, but I'm hoping she is a pullet so I can keep all of them.....

    The last one ended up being a Roo... I have to find a new home for both of them. I only have 2 hens....arg!!! I'm so sad.

    I posted a thread under reforming for Jersey Giants in Santa Fe, Texas.

    Here are the updated beautiful pics at 17 weeks.

    Thanks for the help...I hope I can find them a new home...
