    These little ones are 4 weeks old today. I got the eggs from a friend to put under my broody as I had not rooster at the time. They are from a mixed pen but mist likely mother is Wheaten and father has mixed colours. Any ideas on the sexes- I have a feeling I may have a rooster or two now. Also interested in thoughts on colours.

    Yes it is looking more and more like boys. Local laws mean I am not meant to have boys...... so thinking I may need to get a soundproof night box for them as I love the colouring.
