    Hey guys I have a couple 12 week old babies that I'm unsure of the sex at this point. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    Isn't your BLRW the chicken on the green feed bowl?


    I can only guess on these two - the gold laced chicken has awful large wattles - I'd guess cockerel, but I've never raised wyandottes.

    I think the Splash is a pullet. Her comb is still small and pink.

    I think the Splash is likely a cockerel--His hackle feathers are quite pointy and it looks like his tail is starting to curve down toward the end...

    The Splashed looks like a pullet to me. I have two EE hens and they both have semi-pointed hackle feathers and they have a few feathers that curled at the end. As for the BLRW i would love to see a side pick. I have 3 SLW and 2 are pullets and ones a cockerel. If you could post a pic of his side that would help. [​IMG]

    I think the splash may be a roo. Aren't those gray saddle feathers pointy? The pic is a bit blurry, but they sure look pointy.

    Quote:There is another BLRW on the green bowl, she is a hen. I was curious about the darker chick on the ground. Any thoughts? I'm so torn on the splash, sometimes I think boy sometimes girl. Maybe I'll just have to be patient [​IMG]
