So its been six weeks or so since my two chicks hatched. They have grown a lot since then, here they are when they hatched:-
And here they are now.
This is "Buffy", you can see from the lovely crest which of the two this is:-
And the other is called "McNuggets" (LOL), a poor scrappy looking thing with a patchy neck, quite a large comb for its age and wattle:-
As you can see, these chickens are completely different in appearance. So what do I have here? Initially I thought Buffy with her fine crest was male, but as times gone on I feel "she" is a hen. What do you think?
