    Hello!

    I'm going to collect photos of various breeds, both roos and hens, for an all-around "What Gender Is This?" database. I know something like this was started a while ago, but as far as I know nothing happened to it, so [​IMG] .

    Here's the deal:
    I'm looking for pics of roos and hens, any breed, preferably as 1-day-olds, 3-week-olds, 5-week-olds, 8-week-olds, 2 1/2-month-olds, and adults, though any age is fine. Good pics are obviously preferred, but hey, if you can tell it's a chicken it's OK. [​IMG] It would be preferable if the pics were posted in hindsight, so that you are CERTIAN it's girl/boy. Post the pics here. It's preferable that they are correctly sized (i. e. no itty-bitty-avatar pics and no so-huge-they-take-up-the-whole-screen pics either). I promise I will not use the pics anywhere els and they will remain strictly on BYC; all I'm going to do is copy/paste the web address, not load it onto my computer or anything. I NEED YOUR PICS! Yes you! [​IMG] At the bottom of the final product there will be a note thanking everyone who contributed. I'm pretty sure the final thing will just be a thread, but it might be a personal page. It's still all up in the air right now, but it will settle as soon as some pics are in.

    So let's go!

    i was thinking of making a chart of all the breeds. Ages. Genders. Etc.... until i saw the one in developement.. Maybe try Feathersite.. get all of the photos from there. Just be sure to give credit to them. and Say "Aren't my pictures". should be fine and if it isn't. well when someone askes you can remove the pictures. Most people here have the same breeds (Orps. Cochins, Silkies. Phoenixs. OEGBs, Key west, Polish. EEs. Auracaunas. Leghorns, Rhode island (Red or white). Barred rocks. sexlinks. few random breeds. ) so you would only get a few breeds pictures

    Part of this project, for me, is the participation of BYC members. That way everybody's helping everybody else. I don't just want to copy pics from a random site without anyone's permission. Thanks for the suggection, though!

    BTW, I've seen amny exotic, cool breeds on here, so I'm hopeful! And the "common" ones will just give a greater selection, thus better pics.

    i have one suggestion. i received several pullets between two and three months old. very hard to find pics of any breeds @ that age. feathersite has a limited amount. i think that would be a good age to include. thanks
