    HI!!![​IMG]

    Well many people said that rounded feathers mean hen. But my 5-6 monthers have rounded feathers, but have spur DOTS!!! They have not left the skin but the dots are there. So what can you say about gender.

    Kinda like this?[​IMG]
    That is Mrs.Nezbit who is a Hen.
    Hens get small spur things too, they just don't usually develop into full spurs.

    Quote:Exactly. I was told by the girl who gave me them that they r wyandotte/RIR mix with some unknown breed.

    The spurs are like those dots.

    Oh ya, the girl who gave me them said that her black one is a roo and the brown is a hen. She said mine are the same way.

    I trust BYC on the guess

    So what gender do y'all think?

    They are both 5-6 months old!!!

    Moonlight
    Its comb/wattle has grown, but barely
    Not much growth to the fact. No spurs, only dots

    Dusk
    Its comb/wattle has grown too barely.
    Not much growth actually
    No spurs only dots.

    Are you sure they are 5-6 months old? They don't look that old. They do look like pullets tho.

    I don't know how well you can see them or not, but this girl has spurs that rival any rooster. For the longest time I was just waiting for her to start crowing, despite her rounded feathers.

    Yours look like pullets to me, then again they also only look about 2 or 3 months old.

    They look like leghorn hens/pullets.
    One looks like a brown Dutch leghorn and the other looks like a dark leghorn.
    Look luck with your flock.
