Who is the female ~ we got it wrong before!

Post by Poultryprincess » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:00 pm

I posted some pics a few weeks ago asking the sex of these birds.
Everyone thought they were all males...but we were wrong!

There was also a white sizzle frizzle that had a tiny red comb growing.
I found a home for that one, but I was dreading selling this one.
( my white frizzle female was killed by a mink this fall )

The 2 birds pictured I kept, & guess what????
ONE of them laid a tiny little egg!!!!! :laying egg:
There is NO mistake....they are the only ones in that pen.
I'm kicking myself for not waiting to sex the other bird.
Always a shortage of hens for the guys during the winter.

SOOOOOOO "who" is the female???
NO cash reward, but a thumbs up for guessing right :sSig_number1:

I'm going to guess the white frizzle is the hen.

I say the white as well, but the other could be female as well, both could be pullets. If they are old enough to lay eggs, I don't see those little waddles on a boy.
