Too early to tell yet I'm afraid. Nice birds you have there highfive.gif

Thank you all for chiming in and sharing your thoughts! I was afraid the black polish was a cockerel- always bumping chests and standing up to the girls, even trying to pull out neck feathers from my sweet buff brahma who is almost twice his size. My other one, who we think is a Welsummer cockerel seems very sweet. Looks like we will most likely be down to 6 after starting with what we thought was eight pullets. 😕 We will wait until they are three to four months old just to be sure. The polish ones are pretty fun to watch though!

Also, yeah I am definitely a newbie at this- they get the pine shaving everywhere with this set up and I am sweeping up the garage at least five times a day! Now if we can finish the outside run, we can finally get them outside. I'm afraid at this rate they may be in our garage forever!

How can you tell gender from the egg they hatched from?

Any advice on letting them outside for the first time? I would love to let them free range some, but we along with two neighbors have invisible fences for our dogs and I'm afraid the chicks would be a great snack. 😕 Our one dog on the other hand, is fiercely protective of them.

You can't tell gender from the egg it hatched from.
For free ranging, it would be better if the dogs were inside when you tried it but if there is any chance the dogs will eat them then free ranging may not be an option. You may want to look into large runs instead. They can spook easily and take off much faster than you'd expect. If they got spooked into the dog's area they'd be chicken tenders.
