Sexing Rhodebar Chicks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello! Would anyone be willing to help me identify the sex of the Rhodebar chicks in the attached photo? I hope the photo is helpful!!??? I mixed my Rhodebar, Basque and several Marraduna chicks all together...not sure if the chicks in the bottom photo are Rhodebars?

Thank you:)

Your two rhodebars are males.  The breed is autosexing, which means the males are lighter at birth and have a different color pattern than the females.
