have Any idea?
But i think #2 is a roo
Any particular reason why you think #2 is a rooster?
How old are they? 1# Looks like pullet 2# Cockerel 3# I believe Cockerel 4# Pullets (I think)
They are 11 weeks old... What is it about #2 that makes you think rooster? I have a Easter egger chick that is def a roo, same age, but looks like a rooster, why is this one less defined?
They all look like pullets to me.
The reason they think 2 is a rooster because of his cob. It is fleshy now already. But i kind of think at 11 weeks old it would be a bit bigger and more redish. Anyways keep your eye on number 2 she might very well be a he, because of the cob.
Look at the saddle feathers. Hens tend to have very fluffy rounded feathers and roosters will have feathers with a sharper point. I had a RIR that I though was a hen and then at 5 months old it started to grow long tail feathers and crowed and turned out she was a he
I would say all pullets, altho I'm certainly no expert. I agree that I also had to look long and hard at #2. But I still come down on the side of pullet. Any roo I have had there has been NO doubt by the time they were 12 weeks old. The difference in development was much more obvious.
