    Anyway, if my assumption that tail feathers grow quicker and straighter on chicks then my assumption is correct that I have 4 males and 2 females. 2 of the chicks have longer wings and the tail feathers are coming in quicker then others.

    My chicks have found a new home and their new owner is coming to get them tomorrow. [​IMG][​IMG].

    I'm happy because I feel that the lady will give them a great home, giving her back ground that she works at a vet's office/animal clinic.

    I am sad because I am sad to see them go... I knew that prior to hatching them I could not keep them. But it's sad. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry about having your chicks go, but at least you'll know they'll be happy, in a humane environment.

    I have (am supposed to have) red sex links. I have 6 of them, about 2 weeks old. 2 of them have barely any butt feathers while the other 4 have much more prominent butt feathers.... does that mean I may have 2 males??? [​IMG]

    I really don't know, my Jersey Giants had some missing fluff feathers and they were both boys and girls, when they were chicks. Just wait and see!
