    Pekin chicken

    Hi guys. we recently brought a pekin chicken that’s approximately 2 weeks old. I heard you can sex these chickens quite early, but wasn’t sure when would be too soon? Would it be possible to determine the sex of this baby? Thanks in advance!

    I just got a little budgie and was wondering about the sex. Male or female? I know you genuinely judge by the color of the cere. But I'm new to this! Is my deadly Piper a boy or girl? I was told he/she is around 4 months and has not had a first molt yet (still had little button eyes and barring...

    Thank you everyone who offered help

    Over the last few weeks/months I've been desperate to get a gender on my silkie chick. Got into the 5 month mark with no indications. Lots of you guessed cockerel but weren't sure as it's hard to do with silkies. I watched HIM crow. You all were right even if it was a guess. I'm...

    Is She a HE?

    My Russian Orloff has always been bossy and headstrong. She even gets into fights and attacks with her feet. She has been slow to develop, and her comb is just turning into a red little cushion. Recently, I caught her [possibly] mounting/mating another smaller hen. She hasn't officially...

    Is this little chick a boy or girl???

    I have heard (and found to be true) that red feathers on the upper wings means it's a boy. Do you think this is going to be a rooster? Here are 2 photos. One is 2 days old, the other was today, one month old. I'm praying for a girl and named her Ginger.

    Silkie Gender

    Hello, My black and white silkie are 19 weeks old and I’m pretty sure they’re both hens, but suddenly our black silkie has a comb, and our white one doesn’t. Is it normal for hens to have combs, or do you think our black one is going to turn into a boy overnight sometime?
