    I posted this about a month ago. I was wondering if anyone could advise the gender of my 5 chickens
    The first one is Daisy/Davy (he/she is supposed to be an EE but has a single comb and yellow legs??)

    I also have Barred Olive eggers they have pea combs I think any thoughts on their gender would be appreciated as well.

    Sparky we think is a roo, but it looks like he has a single pea row forming??

    Grijio we also think is a roo he has the triple pea comb....IDK.

    I think the first three are girls...I'm about 99% positive. (I'm still new at this [​IMG] ) I don't know anything about barred olive eggers though so I'll let someone that has more experience handle sexing those ones. lol [​IMG]

    All pullets but Grijio. BTW ee x with BR will only possibly lay a green egg not olive [​IMG] . Single combs probably do not have the blue egg genes and would just lay brown. [​IMG]

    I hope so...I have thought Sparky was a boy since we got him at a few days old...we tried the old wives tales of waving the hand over the head and see who stoops down and who sticks the head up
    or lieing them on their back and see who relaxes.....I dont think any of those methods really work...I guess you just have to wait until it crows or lays an egg:pop
    But, I guess I am just impatient:/

    The Barred Olive eggers were given to us, but my friend in San diego. They were hatched from dark olive green eggs, but I am no expert. I should as my friend what breeds they crossed to get the unique color.
    I am hoping one of the barreds are female, it would be awsome to have the dark green eggs:weee

    I am going to try to get some more opinions this morning, we have to say goodbye to any roosters before they crow:)
    Any other help would be so greatly appreciated!
