    What gender???

    Ok, time to try and figure these out. All but the last 2 chickens, Laverne and Shirley the NHR and Delaware crosses, were hatched out by us on Oct 21st. So, 6 1/2 weeks old. Those last two are around the same age, but were given to us so don't know exactly....Tried to get good pictures, but they were out free ranging and they aren't too keen on posing [​IMG]

    Of the ones we hatched, all were fathered by a white tail red sex link roo. The first 4 chickens were hatched from our EE hen, blue eggs, though they all ended up with yellow legs. I can post pics of the parents for these 4 if needed. The next 2 are Turken from shipped eggs from a BYC member. So, 6 chickens in all...first 4 RSLxEE...next 2 Turken, last 2 NHRxDel. Confused? Sorry about that [​IMG]

    Matilda, Amber, and Randy look like they could be cockerels and the rest look like pullets, But it is still a little early to tell on some.

    I don't know anything about turkens - they are cute though - so I won't guess on them, and the only one I see that looks at all like a roo would MAYBE be lavern, buut really that one could still go either way too. Beautiful flock!!!!

    IMHO all of the EE's are roos. Laverne also looks suspicious to me.

    Hard to say yet, but Randy sure looks rooish to me. Of the chicks we've hatched, the roos always seemed to feather more slowly than the pullets.

    The only one I'm sure is a pullet is Zoe. The rest of the EEs look like little cockerels, and I'm not sure on the Turkens.

    Looks like all of the EEs are roos. Zoe could be a pullet, but I would have to see pictures of them in a couple of weeks to be sure. Laverne and Shirley could also be pullets but I'm not sure. Not sure on the turkens either...although Stella might be a roo.
