Can I try to sex my chicks this early?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The first picture shows my week old Golden Laced Wyandotte, Lacie with a tennis ball (for size comparison). The second is just a profile. I know it's early, but I'm worried. She's already showing a small,pale cream comb. She is gentle, occasionally pecks, but mostly just cuddles, and is very protective of the new baby in the brooder box. She has skinny orange legs and a fluffy tail. She came from Murdoch's and was vent sexed. What do you guys think?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggest waiting until they are 6 weeks old and the post pics on the "what breed or gender is this?" forum.

 

All the best

Agree with CTken     -   you can always try early but, the earlier guesses  aren't as valid as one's  given later on.   6-8 weeks is good.  Is she a bantam chick of the breed?
