First time chicken owner- already in love 😍

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So we got 7 chicks, BBS Ameraucana's and noooo idea on the sexes. I tried with the help of google images for feather sexing, looking to see if they had "frowny" or "smiley" bums, and now with their combs but still no idea. As chicks I thought I may have crazily lucked out got 7/7 pullets but I guess time will tell 😊
We're trying to get our coop built ASAP but they're growing so fast!

Welcome to BYC!

Unfortunately, without vent sexing (and it is not as straightforward as we would like - even experienced sexers have a 5-15% oops rate) you'll simply have to wait a few weeks and evaluate the characteristics that start to develop. 
Sounds like you've learned one of the first lessons many newcomers do as to the growth rate of chicks -- good luck on getting the build done!

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Hi and :welcome -glad that you have joined us. 

 

If you post pics of your little ones when they are 6 weeks old or so, on the "what breed or gender is this?" forum, members will be able to help you out.

 

All the best
