Hi all

I have another group of Pekins and Pekin Frizzles that I thought I had sexed but now aren't so sure, maybe some of my partridge 'cockerells' are girls???

Here is a pic and I've written M & F on them for what I think

If you need individual pics let me know and I'll take them tonight

I think it would be easier for all if you got some individual pic's, but judging from what I can see I think that you got it right, but I'm usually wrong. :lol:

It's good to see wattles as well as combs and overall body shape of individual birds :)

So what have you decided to do with them come Monday?
Is someone having chicken for dinner?

have you seen the size of them Nicci? :lol:

I am taking them to the vet to be put down, he's charging me $20 the lot, so I figure this is the kindest option for us

I couldn't decide if you'd found a market I hadn't found yet or were going to the vet, as that sounded expensive, but actually that is surprisingly reasonable. Where are you going?
I spent $130 at the avian vet yesterday, as a pair of pekins were showing signs of a cold. And I was panicing that it would be the start of something evil that would spread through everyone. Not to worry though, just your basic type cold, needing a few days antibiotics.
Pretty confident about our husbandry now though, as she also checked them manually for external parasites and did a culture on their droppings to check for internal parasites, cocci etc. They were spotless, yah. Said that those too probable only picked it up cause they were moulting heavily and more suseptable.

So you decided against taking them to a petshop or market?
I suppose thats a big risk cause whilst there is the chance they end up with a good home, more than likely not and no control over how they are treated.

What colours are the pure pekin boys? Has someone called Kean e-mailed you?

He is picking up a frizzle girl from me on Saturday, might see if he wants to take one of the boys aswell, initially he didnt want to upset his existing rooster.

The vet that is doing it is a friend of my dad's so is 'looking after me' so to speak, so i better not mention his name 8)
I decided against the petshop and markets cos I have spoilt them whilst I've had them and don't want them to end up being mistreated. I managed to give away one of a gorgeous Frizzle boys thru Farmstock which I was pleased about.

I'm glad you found a home for one, goodluck with the rest. You have my sympathy, its not easy.
Must rush, gotta try and get over near Dandy by 1, without a car; which of course died whilst I had the chooks in a huge pp40 carrier out at burwood. Hoping this campervan I'm going to look at will be driveable, so I can buy it and drive it home. Then we have got somewhere to move to next week.
