Please can you help sex these two?
I am thinking hens! How old are they! They are beautiful!!!
I got them at the beginning of August and they were 8 weeks old so they must be around 13/14 weeks now
Here's another pic
I would say you have cockerels there. Have they not crowed yet? They are very red and have pronounced combs and wattles for 13/14 weeks old.
Nope, no crowing, they haven't even clucked yet, still chirp like chicks! I simply can not tell what sex they are and i just can't bring myself to name them until I know if I'll be able to keep them
At first glance, they looked like roosters to me. But then I looked at your pictures more closely, and I don't see any male feathering. But their combs are really red for their age....At this point they could be either...If they start to develop male feathers, then you have boys.
Could you define "male feathering" please? They both have feathered feet but I believe this is a pekin trait of both sexes? These two really have me stumped
Male feathering would be long, semi translucent, shiny feathers in the neck and in between the back and tail feathers. Those feathers are called hackle and saddle feathers. I'll add a picture.
