    Hello all! First post ever [​IMG] I'm hoping I can get an idea of what sex these chicks are (four total). Three of which are 4 weeks today with the BO being around 5 weeks. I'm completely new, have limited space and live in a residential area so I'm REALLY crossing my fingers for pullets but the waiting is driving me crazy... mainly because I'm quickly falling in love with these little guys (I meanGIRLS! lol) -I'll let you be the judge of that;)

    Here's Ming Ming our BO @ 5 weeks


    Here's Luna our BR @ 4 weeks


    Nut Meg Americuana or EE? The feed store said Americauna??


    and last but not least our little Sprocket the Black Orpington



    Any thoughts? It will (hopefully) give me some peace of mind. I'd hate to have to give one of these babies away if it were a Roo! But that's the reality of my situation if they are.

    I'm a little iffy on the BR, but the rest are girls, I believe.

    I'm in the same situation and feel your pain. If they only came with little labels! LOL

    Anyway, I think they all look like pullets but it's kind of hard to tell at this age. I

    Nutmeg is an EE because her legs are green! But be proud! I have 14 ee's[out of 21] and they are the sweetest. They all look like they are pullets but only time will tell! Good luck!

    PS- VERY cute!!!
