    I have some chickens that we don't know what sex they are and breed.
    First I think is a male porcelain d'Uccle.
    [​IMG]
    second one i think is a male too.....i hope not. sorry it's blurry he moves super fast so it's hard to get a pic. he's hyper.
    [​IMG]
    third, not sure the sex but i think a RIR.
    [​IMG]
    here's another one with the third one and three others I'm unsure about too.

    The first one is definately a porcelan d'uccle. second one doesnt look like a rooster, but i think it may be a silver laced wyandotte. The dark browns are rirs, the lighter brown is a gold comet, and the white one with the big crest im going to say white leghorn roo. they are infamous for huge crests and loud crows! [​IMG] have fun with your chickens! and dont worry about too many roos; i have 4 all in separate cages [​IMG]
     
  3. does # 2 have feathered legs? I cant tell in picture...feathered legs = silver laced cochin clean legs = silver laced wyndotte.
    #1 i agree with you on...
    #3 RIR...
    the other I got no clue.

    yeah, number two has clean legs. but he's from the assorted bantam bin at TSC can wyandotte be bantams.
    and as for the porclain one i read d'uccles can be bearded and non-bearded.
    is the rhode island red a boy like i think?
    And is the first one male? or are all ones like him flighty?

    thanks all.

    Quote:Actually, D'Uccles have to have a beard to fit their standard. ''D'Uccle'', refers to the belgian bearded D'Uccle. I've never heard of a belgian bearded D'Uccle that wasn't bearded [​IMG]. A booted bantam is the same thing, but without a beard.

    oh! OK, then. now i just need the sexes. ^^ oh and if my big hen is a meat or boiler bird. If we don't kill her will she live a good life? We didn't want meat birds, my mom doesn't believe in killing pets and she sees the chickens as pets. I'm abit worried because i heard they don't live long enough to even make it to laying age.
