We have 5 chicks who are 5 weeks old and all different breeds so hard to compare. This is our Golden Laced Wyandotte Princess (or maybe Prince) Leia! Haha trying to answer the age old question of male or female? Any input is appreciated!!
So i have two batches of chicks that i have together so the first 2 chicks won’t be so lonely as i had lost 2 of their siblings. The older ones are 6 weeks and the younger ones are a bit over 4 weeks old. The bully chick which i thought was a roo might actually be a hen. I also have an unknown...

My males started crowing about a week ago. I’m wondering when my females might begin to lay? Also I took out some extra males because my male to female ratio was pretty bad. Wanted to nip it in the bud before my females got picked on. I left it with two males and seven females in a 3x6 foot pen...

I've raised bantams in the past. However these seemed like older chicks from TSC have had them as of yesterday this is the 3rd week. Bit confused on this one. Bantams can't be sexed by wings mostly comb and those darn under chin things can't think of the word. Anyway what do you think?
Recently, we got a batch of chicks surrendered to our farm. Just our luck, 3 out of 9 chicks ended up being roosters. Two of the roosters are Black Australorps and one is an Easter Egger. They are about 4 months old now and very friendly! All of the roosters are vaccinated and...
Hi, these two are my roughly 16 week old Crevecoeur chickens, I think the one with the spikey hairdo Is a cockerel, but I’ve never heard it crow, or even attempt to crow. All my other chickens that are cockerels have crowed already. It’s got a tiny bit of red on it’s waddles, but no visible...
(I'm dumb and posted this to the chicken sexing forum instead of the one for ducks, and I don't know how to delete my thread so I can move it; I'm sorry.)
Is Twisty a boy or a girl? He is the one making the raspy whistle sound (sorry about all the conflicting duck sounds, this was their first...
Hello! How hard is it to tell female vs male in a silkie? I have two silkies, they hatched may 11. I am just wondering if they should be laying by now or not if they are female. I’ve included a picture of my Naked neck, Ms. Frizzle😍
hello, I have 1 muscovy duck that I have been spending all of my time with for the past 49 days, it is 49 days old. I'm thinking girl because she is feathering in very quickly and is still pretty small. I would love to get opinions as i want to get a friend soon for the little one but I don't...
