    Hi everyone.
    could you please take a look at my two pekins. I got them at around 3-4weeks old, which would now make them 10-11 weeks.
    I have a sneaky suspicion one of them may be a roo, but to be honest i really dont have a clue.

    thats the first one.

    if one or both of these is male, i do want to have lil chickens running around the place, but i want to incubate the eggs naturally. So could someone also please give me the heads up on that?

    thanks
    jazz

    I am voting both boys. At 10-11 weeks their combs are really red.

    Aloha,


    I favor toward Boys! But If you can get a close image of the Hackle, Saddle, & Sickle feathers of the two I could confirm the white pekin for sure. But the Blue-red one looks male.
    I hope that is possible.


    Another note:
    I you do have boys you can habituate them to you before the gals role in because I had a red Pekin and he was a monster, Beating Blood, so he had to go. But his Sons were just wonderful and I kept them, even though they were crosses.

    75 percent sure the first one is a boy
    90 percent sure the second one is a boy....

    Sorry but this is just an excuse to get more chickens!

    Both roos, for that age there is a lot of red, large combs and waddles. Your blue copper at the bottom is likely the more domonate roo.
