Pekin Bantams can you sex my chicks? Rooster or Hen?

Recommended Posts

Hi 

We hatched 4 beautiful chicks! They are 20 days old. We think

Nando’s is Black Pekin Bantam 

Minnie is Black Mottled Pekin Bantam 

Nugget is Lavender Pekin Bantam 

Dipper is Lavender Pekin Bantam 

Are we right? And do you think any of them are roosters? Or Do we need to wait few more weeks to find out?  😊

Thank you so much 😊

I think it’s a bit early to find out. Certainly from pictures. Their behaviour will tell a little bit more. But I think you’ll have to be a bit more patient.

they are very cute though!

Lovelies!

OK, so they are a bit young, but my bet is that if any of them is male, it could be Minnie. Also Nugget looks to have a more Porcelain colouring than Lavender, which the last photo definitely is.

Thank you so much 😊 

We think Minnie is the rooster as you said but she doesn’t behave like one 🤦‍♀️ She (he🤣) is so relax, calm and like to do things on her own 🤦‍♀️😊 her wattles are already showing 🤦‍♀️ They only chick that slightly behave like a rooster is Nugget 😊 but not always 🥰 
 

Do you think Nugget and Dipper are the same breed? And what about Minnie and Nando’s?

Those are just absolutely gorgeous chicks 😊

I wish I had bitten the bullet and incubated some of my own whilst I haven't been working at school, but I think I might be too late now.

Please keep us updated with some more photos.

Nugget looks about a week older than the others, and possibly a pekin mix, but without seeing them together it isn't easy to tell.

Funny that you said that 🥰

Minnie and Nugget hatched at the same time. Minnie few seconds earlier 🥰  Nando’s 6 hours and 40 minutes earlier. Dipper 6 hours and 20 minutes later 🥰  so Nugget was 3rd in line 🥰

and yes I spent the whole night watching them hatch 🐣🤦‍♀️🤣 that’s why I know the exact times 🤣🤦‍♀️  I think I’m a bit obsessed with them 🤦‍♀️🤣 
Nugget is the heaviest one and then Minnie, Dipper and Nando’s. When they were born Minnie was the smallest 🥰🤦‍♀️ Definitely not any more 🤣 

Nando’s and Minnie look like they are both Black mottled pekin Bantam. But when I bought the eggs Nando’s supposed to be Black Pekin 🤦‍♀️
What do you think? 🥰  are the same? 🥰

I’d say Minnie is a boy, Dipper and Nugget are girls, Nando’s I’m not sure.

The colours can change loads as they grow up so it’s hard to say.

All very cute - makes me want to hatch again!
