    [​IMG]Hi all,

    I've been having fun with my chicks this winter/spring. I have 2 roosters, 1 Bielefelder and 1 Crested Cream Legbar, and lots of chicks. Some of them I know are hens, but there are some that I just am not sure about,,,

    Your opinions would be helpful!

    Dec 20 hatch date, True Blue Whiting, same bird, 2 photos.

    Any opinions would help. I think that the last photo is a hen. At least, I'm really hoping that it is because I named her Peaches!

    Anything with a red comb at 2 months of age is a rooster usually, also at 3 months too. So I think they are all roosters.

    About 20 minutes after I posted, my husband informed me that two chickens were fighting... I looked out to see the True Blue Whiting doing the rooster dance around a young Bielefelder pullet! I guess I have the answer to photos 1 and 2!

    I am curious if anyone thinks that the last photo is a roo??? I think that all the others are roos, but I'm not sure about the redhead!

    If the last one hatched out 7 weeks ago it is also a cockerel. Too much comb color for that age to be a pullet.
