    Gender?

    I believe I have a Columbian Rock chick and a Speckled Sussex Chick. I was wondering if anyone has a guess as to what sex they are? They are around 4-5 weeks old. Hope these pictures are good.

    Hey guys!! I realize I am jumping the gun on sexing as my guy is only about 2-3 weeks old. But...I am suspecting this fella is a cockerel! this is based on comparison with his suspected “pullet” sister’s appearance characteristics. She doesn’t have as pronounced comb and legs are much more...

    What kind of chick is this? Please help

    I got 3 americaunas, none look like an americauna, but this one looks way different than the others! Can someone please help me figure out what chick it is? I am so stumped. I’ve never seen on with markings like this on the face. It’s got eyeliner, zig-zags, and it’s super fluffy.
