    Lucy, Ruby, and Bonnie look like possible cockerels but they are to young to say for sure. (love the names by the way)

    I'm really inexperienced, but it is my understanding that your splash rooster (non-barred) over a barred hen produces solid blue color females and blue barred boys with a white dot/spot on back of head. Based upon that, you should be able to tell the boys from the girls. Looks like several have barring. They are beautiful!!!

    This is my 12 week old Mottled Java, I believe pullet. She also has the green tinting to her black feathers. And she has spur bumps, Can you confirm that she is a pullet, and I was hoping that if she is momma chickie could use her as a reference for her mottled java questions. I read that her's was very friendly, mine is not. She is very shy. But this may have more to do with the kids packing her ever where as a wee one because she was so pretty!

    Hello,
    I have a 2 1/2 month old Americauna my daughter is in love with. Any chance you can tell from this photo if it is a rooster? [​IMG]

    I'm just getting started with chickens and had a friend give me 4 barred rocks when they were 4 weeks old from a straight run and now they are about 10 or 11 weeks old. We though we picked out 4 pullets but i went to let them out of the coop this morning and heard a cock-a-doodle-do. Can yall take a look at a few pics and tell me what you think whether they are pullets or cockerels?
