Does this look like a Cock to you?


The flock at the FruityChicken has really expanded but my ID skills, whether related to breed or sex, hasn’t improved much. So I am forced to rely on the kindness of strangers.1.  I know this one is a Golden Cuckoo Marans and am pretty sure it is a Pullet

 

2. This one is a Backyard Bastard and has very cute white earlobes and a blue tail

 

3. My Sweety, Karen, got this one down in Escondido. It was listed as a “fancy” pullet.

 

4. Another one of those “fancy” pullets from Escondido

 

5. Ignoring the EE in the middle I think the two black ones are Black Copper Marans pullets

 

6. A closeup of one of the suspected Black Copper Marans pullets.

 

7. This is another Golden Cuckoo Marans that I believe is a Cockerel

 

8. In this group shot I think I have starting at 12 o’clock a BCM pullet, 2 GCM pullets at 1, a White Cochin pullet at 5, GCM roo at 6, and finally a Buff Cochin pullet at the 9 o’clock position.

If there’s any chicken experts reading this please let me know what you think, If your not an expert your comments are welcome also!

P.S. Ain’t I got a pretty bunch of chooks?

  1. Those Black copper marans are just beautiful. I may get some next time. As far as finding a roo I reccomend what we did. Stand in the yard in the morning and wait for a crow…then seperate the one you think is the rooster and if the crow comes from the seperate area you know you’ve got the right bird. Let us know how it works out!

      I have gotten rid of 8 Roosters in the last 2 weeks with that method, now I’m down to the stealthy ones! I need to post some pics of my BCM roo’s, they are gorgeous! Just to many. Out of 10 that hatched I only have 2 pullets, know anyone that wants a real purdy BCM roo near Las Vegas?

  2. I love them all – so cute – but have no idea what any of them are. Sorry, zero help but plenty of admiration.

    Pic 3 & 4 – roosters. All the rest look like pullets. That’s my opinion of course, but the birds in 3 & 4 have a cape that falls from the neck and drapes over their back, and look at the size of the legs compared to the others.

    I agree- real nice looking birds.
