its been a while since I have been here...my EE girls grew beautifully, but now, we have babies! I placed several of their eggs under my broody Australorps...I have 2 that just hatched, I am thinking chick #2 is a male, due to red feathers on his wings...can anyone help me out here, or is it really too soon? I also did the feather sexing and the 2 are different...I think chick #1 is a female...what say you!?
Chick #2, suspected roo
Chick #1, suspected girl, see her wings, you can see little pin feathers, under the rest of her wing. My avatar could be her mother...
No clue here. I've never done feather sexing, so for the way I do it, it's way too early. They're awful cute though!
Looks like a pullet to me. She's got a common female pattern.
It's still a bit early to be sure (for me anyway) but if I were to venture a guess I'd say pullet. Don't quote me on that though! ;)
