Hi all, I was sitting out in the chicken house today studying my growing birds....they're all between 7-10 weeks old now. Like a lot of you I am having fun trying to see if I can pick out which ones are roosters. I've got two pegged due to their early comb/wattle development- my Japanese Bantam (I think that's what he is) rooster who is now 7 weeks old had a big red comb at 4 weeks!! Anyway, I keep reading that one of the characteristics of roosters is that they have "pointed saddle feathers" whereas hens will have rounded ones. I am wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to see a couple of good pics that highlight the difference between a rooster's "pointed" feathers and a hen's rounded ones? Either a website, a post on this forum, or your own photos of your own birds?? It seems to me a lot of my birds have "tapered" feathers on their backs, even the ones I'm virtually certain are hens. This is my first time raising chickens so I'd like to get a clear visual as to what the difference in feathers really is? Thanks in advance!!
