Hey backyard friends. I have 3 black sex link chicks and I know one of them is a Cockerel. But what do you guys think on these 2? They don’t have much comb development yet but the rooster also developed his early. It’s hard to tell on these 2 because they look like they are barred but not fully and I know only sex link roosters are like that. Thank you for your input.
I don’t see anything screaming cockerel on the top picture, however the bottom picture resembles a cockerel. For now, I would say pullet for the top one, and cockerel for the bottom one. The top bird has no comb or waddle development, while the bottom one shows clear waddles, and they are too young for saddle feathers if they were cockerels. So, I’d say one pullet and one cockerel. By the way, they are beautiful! The silver laced Wyandotte is one of my favorite breeds, and the silver laced coloration is one of my top 5 favorites.
Congratulations on being the owner of those beautiful chickens!
