    19C1248A-7254-49A8-BF96-36D98AF5B646.jpeg Sure these are about a week or two older them mine . Male and female together they almost look identical. I’m thinking we might have to wait a few more weeks

    I know this isn't the group you're asking about but looking @ this photo I'd say you have @ least 2/3 cocks if not 4 going by the combs on the three I can see clearly. And I am not a chicken expert, just commenting on the differences.

    The other thing I noticed is that the ones I'm assuming to be hens have combs that don't go past their entire eye. Those with larger combs, have combs that go to the end of their eyes in the middle of their head. :2cents:

    Just observations as I said. I look at the differences and I know that hens have much smaller combs than cocks usually do (not to mention the size difference once grown).

    Not boasting, but whenever I've taken gccs in to Dr. Scott for sexing I've usually got the sex right (much to the surprise of Jenna, tiel breeder, who assists Dr. Scott). :fortune: Maybe I have bird ESP? :jeanie:
