Hey all! I picked up my first set of chicks about 4 weeks ago and I’m watching them quickly grow. This is the list of breed (order of pictures):
I believe they were about a week old when I purchased them, so they’re approximately 5 weeks old at this point. I’ve read a million threads about sexing and it’s inconsistencies with young chicks, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’re all pullets, but it would be fun to get everyone’s opinions! Here we go:
I was told the top chick is a Favorelle and I started to wonder if it’s a boy when some black started to pop up in the feathers. The wings seem to be very light, and I’ve read that some hatchery favorelles can have a messier coloring.
There are no roosters in Portland city limits, so we’ll see if everyone gets to hang around!
