So, bird one appears to have green legs and a pea comb (and also appears to be a cockerel, btw) - and looks to have had a "chipmunk" pattern to it's down - is that correct?
Bird two - can you get a comb shot or at least share the comb type it is developinng?
Here's a pic of my other one.
Bird 1 with green legs and pea comb is an Easter Egger...and yes a rooster...red bars on wings.
Bird 2 looks to be a RIR or Production Red...female at this point.
Bird 1 - EE cockerel
Bird 2 - was this one a solid color as a downy chick or did it have pattern in the down? Leaning towards one of the single combed, yellow legged "red" birds - ie production red, RIR, etc......
I'm still figuring this site out so bare with me. I think I responded too many times.
Well, I hope it's not a cockerel because we're not permitted to have them. And I really am attached already
I'll have to go thru pics and see if the red one was a solid color. I wanna say she was. Kinda like a red-burnt orange color.
Where did they come from?
I agree the multi colored bird in front in the first pic is an EE cockerel. Not positive on gender on the other bird yet.
It's always the one you get attached to - unfortunately with a comb that is already pinking up and showing three rows of "peas" as well as feathering in with a typical "male" pattern to his plumage you have a cockerel on your hands. Start preparing yourself emotionally to separate from him and start looking for his new/next home sooner rather than later - also start looking for another pullet (or two ) to replace him with so that your remaining bird is not a lone chicken.
I got them from a kids party. They had animals there and the people who brought and own the animals were giving away chicks. My kids begged and I have in. So I was thrown into this and have to learn as I go along. I was already wanting chickens but definitely wanted to be more prepared and knowledgeable. However, I do love and care for them and ugh...I reallllly hope it's not a cockerel. I'll be devastated
