    I will love chick 8? more than the others? I am very interested in finding out what he/she looks like as an adult.

    Chick 5 is very motherly, she/he tends to hang out with the little babies, I have caught him/her on more than one occasion with his/her wings spread out over the babies, nestled down in the corner at night..

    Chick 8 will be a silver duckwing in color. But, looking at that comb I may be wrong, chick 8 just might be a boy and be golden duckwing w/columbian.

    If Chick 8 grows to have ANY color in the shoulders/wings - Boy. If not - Girl.

    3 is a definite girl

    4 is likely a girl

    Chick #9 might be a boy but I am finding that I am terrible with the pea combs and figuring out what is a girl and what is a boy. I would help with the Brahmas, but I am having a terrible time figuring out mine as well. [​IMG] I think I have finally figured out my dark Brahma chicks but the lights and the one buff I have I go back and forth on.

    Guesses-

    #1-?
    #2-?
    #3-Girl
    #4-Girl
    #5-Girl
    #6-boy
    #7-?
    #8- ?
    #9- Boy?

    Chick 3,4,and 5 came from a breeder not TS and he said that they were sexed pullets. He had 2 brooders of chicks one with roos and one with pullets- I am not sure if his guess were acurate or not, but it is sounding like they might be...

    I have been leaning towards male with chick 8 for quite some time, with every noise, he/she chirps loudly and stretches his/her neck way out, whereas most of the other crouch down and scatter.

    attempted crowing in the brooder containing chicks 3,5,8,and 9. As well as 2 GLWs(2 weeks old) 6 Golden Comet pullets( just under 1 week) and 6 White leghorn pullets(also just under 1 week)...

    It sounded kinda high pitched like art ta rrrrr....

    The mystery continues....
