In the Brooder
- Dec 18, 2015
Hi I was hoping for some help sexing these 5 week old chicks and to find out what breed mum is. Mum was rescued after being abandoned at a property as well as dad....dad is a Wyandotte.
Those chicks did not have a Wyandotte father. Wyandottes have rose combs that are dominant over single combs. Mom looks like a silkied Cream Legbar. The silkie gene is recessive, so both parents need it. The father had to have both feathered legs and carry a silkie gene.
Having said that, all those chicks look male. Those combs are way too pink, too early for pullets.
