Need Help with Sexing and Breeds

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by citychickinthecountry, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. I have 4 chickens that I need help determining genders and breeds. I've raised my babies since they were 2 days old. They've been handled daily, so they are loving (when they aren't moody) and they should all be Bantam breeds, but I'd like to find out specifically which breeds. They will be 21 weeks old on Monday.


    This is Angel. I know she's a hen. She started laying eggs at 18 1/2 weeks. I'm just not sure of her breed.


    This is Buttercup.


    This is Dot. We believe Dot may be a Rooster.


    And this is Penny. This isn't the best picture, but it's the only one I could get where she would face me AND hold still.

    I think the first one is a black tailed white japanese bantam. And the second may be a Sexlink hen? Not sure on the others. Very nice looking birds by the way.

  5. Thank you (the comment on my babies being nice looking). I love them dearly.

    Dot (my punk rocker), is a little on the crazy side. [​IMG] She makes me laugh though.
