The story so far...

viewtopic.php?f=39&t=54797

Chickie 1 and Chickie 2 were collected on Sunday and now residing with us, they are 4 weeks old. I was wondering if anyone could possibly sex them.

One is a Barnevelder and the other a Buff Cochin.

Thank you, kindly 52.gif

Thank you, kindly 52.gif Bill

Sadly :( we can not keep cockerels/roosters so we will have to rehome him and get another pullet.

This is the Cochin, it is nearly 3 months old. Do you still think that it is a pullet? It is yet to be named.

The Barnevelder is named Barnie, he will have to find a new home as soon as he starts to crow :(

My how they've grown!

I think it still looks like a pullet also. But I'm not very experienced so I could be wrong.

Hopefully you can keep her!
