    I have four 3 week old chicks. I was told the 2 multicolored chicks are Easter Eggers and the other 2 are sex-link Buff Leghorns. Can anyone help me confirm this, please? Also, is it too early to tell the gender? These are my first chickens-I am very new at this. I want to make sure I know the correct breed so I can become as educated as possible. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Too early to tell. Gender usually you can tell at 5-8 weeks. Boys will get pink combs than red.

    Since your birds are mixed breeds it can be hard to say for sure if they are the mixes you believe they are. Best guess can be made when they are mature after 6 months.
