Hey Chicken Folks, I have a backyard flock in a city that doesn't allow roosters, so am hoping for as many pullets as possible. My two buff Orpingtons (Nancy and Billina) and my Barred Rock (Antonia) were sexed chicks. The bearded Polish (Fluffy the Vampire Slayer) and the Cochin (Echo) were straight-run. I should've known better than to buy straight-run chicks, but I saw them at an Urban Homesteading booth at a festival, and couldn't resist the frizzles! Most of the chicks are five weeks old, and the barred rock is seven weeks. I'm beginning to see some traits from Fluffy and Nancy that fit with what I'm reading from the forum are early cockerel signs. So, here are some pics of Nancy and Billina: Nancy's comb and wing Nancy's wattles Antonia Antonia Billina's comb Billina's wattles Billina (foreground) with Nancy Billina and Nancy Billina yawning (not crowing) Fluffy, wing and side Fluffy's brand spanking new comb Echo Echo's comb Am I being cockerel-phobic, or do I have two (Nancy and Fluffy)? Is it too soon to tell? I have no previous experience with chickens, so will sincerely appreciate any help you can offer!
