    Hello [​IMG]

    Thankyou for making this thread, the other "What gender is my chicken" threads do get really busy!




    Im unsure about the gender of my sweet little gal' 'Hope;. She looks big but shes still a chick and not even the quarter size of the bigger birds. Anyway, im not sure if Hope is a girl or boy nut senses are telling me shes actually a she. Opinions?

    Shes about 4 and a half weeks old, and is one of my beloved mixed breeds.

    At that age i would say a little cockerel! That is a lot of comb for such a young chicken

    Oh please no, I have to much cockerels already! Shes/ hes 31 days old (I generally use days instead of weeks for young chicks) Does that make a difference......? [​IMG] But geez, I was honestly hoping that I would get no more cocks.

    Im also unsure about these two mixed breeds. The one on the left is Bambi who hatched 2/09 and the one on the right hatched on the 1/09. My guess is that Bambi may be a cockerel because she has big sturdy legs and darker legs than her siblings (Sprinkles and Hope)

    I know you dont want to hear this but these two also look like cockerels! But lets see what @QueenMisha , @donrae , @CTKen and @drumstick diva thinks!

    Your kidding me, right? The last batch that one of the broody hens hatched were all boys so I really don't need any more! If they are all young cockerels then they have silly names, that's for sure! I was hoping that they would all be girls..
