Can anyone tell me whether my young Plymouth Rock is a rooster or a hen?
We need to know how old they are before being able to make a decent estimate.
Yes, please how old is your BR?
The breeder was a little vague - We think around 8 - 10 weeks?
Looks like a pullet to me. My BR cockerels get big pink combs by six weeks old and are much lighter. Of course, most can be sexed at hatch if they are pure BRs.
Thanks for the feedback!
X2, that's nowhere near the comb and wattle size a cockerel should have at even 6 weeks.
Great! Thanks. I was hoping it was a hen. We're not permitted to keep roosters in suburban Sydney.
I'm thinking pullet, but I'd wonder at the Rock part. Those legs look white/pink to me, Rocks should have yellow legs.
Rachel, on my monitor, blowing the photo up, they seem to be yellow, albeit very pale yellow. Some hatchery stock tends to have paler leg color than they should.
