These chicks are a tad bit older than 4 wks. There are some differences between the two. I personally think they are boy and girl, but I'd like some other opinions too.

This is the first one, we'll call it Frank.






Here is the second one, hmmm.... how about Francesca? (Standing on the box). You can see the copper on this one, while Frank has none, if that helps decipher gender.

i think two boys Frank comb and wattles give him away and if the other already as color its probably a roo too as hens get color later than the boys do.

Thank you. They must be re-homed then. Fine by me... I don't think they're the best quality IMO...but then again, I've never had BCM; maybe they're just ugly as chicks ; )

Gosh, I have a BCM that is 4 weeks old and his/her comb is not at all pronounced and no sign of wattles. Actually he/she is my favorite chickie and I named him Samson hoping for a cockrel to replace our meanie roo but I think Samson may just be a Sammi! Only time will tell!
