    Hi all
    I have three young chickens, about 10 weeks old and thought I would get your opinions on whether I have boys or girls



    [​IMG]
    Here is the first, a Rhode Island red called Red
    I am thinking this one is a boy as it has a large comb and wattle

    This photo and the one below show my Golden Laced Wyandotte, Nancy
    I think she is a she as she only has a very small comb and wattle ....

    And here is my faverolle, Scarlett, I am thinking she is a she as she has barely got any comb yet and seems to have female colours

    Thanks
    Emily

    Thanks everyone! :)

    I'm so glad I have three girls to add to my flock!
    I will keep posting pictures of their progress as they grow into hens!

    I think the first one is a male, and the rest females.

    Hi everyone!
    I just thought I would give you an update on the young chickens :)
    They are now about 13 weeks old
    Here they all are hanging out together:

    [​IMG]
    I am still sure that the Wyandotte (Nancy) and faverolle (Scarlett) are pullets....... but I am not so sure about the rhode island red (red)
    [​IMG]
    Here he/she is ........seems to have the lighter comb of a pullet but the tail looks rather rooster like ......from the front looks like a hen but side on looks like a rooster ? I have no idea
