Hi all!
These chicks are 5 weeks old now and some are developing large comb and wattles, with a lot of red in them for their age too. I'm worried I have three cockerels, which if so would make a 30% male ratio out of a sexed chick bin! The first two are Production Blues, the last is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.
First suspect (Production Blue "Integral"):

Second suspect (Production Blue "Derivative"):

And finally, the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte "Blue Bird" or just Blue.

Thanks!

I have two Sapphire Gems that looked just like the two first “production blues” and they developed pretty quickly as well wattles & combwise I thought for sure at least one had to be a rooster but she ended up being a girl they were both even the first of my 12 (various breeds) to lay eggs. i really think your 2nd is a girl and the first as well. I have a GLW so I believe the The Wyandotte looks like a girl also!

I'm not familiar with production blues, but I would guess those are males too, but give them time. The Wyandotte looks like a pullet to me.
Thanks! I'll be glad if the Wyandotte is female.

Well, that would be really great if so!
