    Sweet, that would mean only 5 cockerels. (4 barred and 1 cochin (keeping).) Plus we have four more sexed pullets at 1 week old. Best results from feed store free straight run 3/7 pullets.

    Looks like cinnamon might be a cockerel, comb getting bigger and turning pink. Cherry still has itty bitty tail feathers (same size as my 1 week old pullet), but comb getting bigger and I see hints of pink.

    Bummer. I wondered a bit about those huge feet and legs on Cherry.

    Here is cinnamon, 4 weeks old, comb getting bigger and turning pink, pink waddles, plus I can see som black shiny green feathers on tail, and wings
    So is this chick a cockerel or am I paranoid.

    I still think it may be an early developing pullet. The comb on a male should be a bit larger at 4 weeks. [​IMG]

    Thanks, I hope so, she is a sexed pullet but both of my RIR look so different feathering from each but have same combs, I really hope both are girls, I couldn't tell they look so different from my young Barred Rocks which were easy to sex. Does this mean she might begin to lay earlier and if so how soon.
