For next time - photograph them so we can see them standing. It's useful to see feathering (including back & tail feathering), head, comb & legs.

I think you're basically right and of your three unknowns the first two might be pullets and the last one might be a cockerel. BTW, a female bird of this age is a pullet, not a cockerel. :wink:

Well done on having some lovely birds.

I have a few photos of some of them wandering around, they're fast little buggers, which made it hard to get photos of all of them. Which is why I ended up holding them for photos. Will try getting some photos of the unknowns standing. [PS. there are four unknowns, #5, #9, #10, #11]

:oops: Of course, pullets and cockerels. I knew that, my brain is fuzzy today so I'm going to blame it on that. :lol:

#13. [black, black] Cockerel
Image

L-R #12 [black blue] Pullet, #6 [white red] Cockerel, #9 [white black] Cockerel
Image

L-R #1 [yellow, white] Cockerel, #7 [white, none] Pullet
Image

#5 [white, white] Unknown
Image

Top #4 [white, yellow] Pullet, Bottom #2 [yellow, red] Pullet
Image

L-R #13 [black, black] Cockerel, #3 [yellow, black] Pullet
Image

I must assume that you now know the outcome for the 4 unknown genders of 20/12/10. I think I will just close the Index link with both genders. :P
