    These are the last of the chicks I don't know about gender-wise. I have rehomed 2 cockerels (boo hoo) from my original group and am wondering if I should be looking for any more rooster-homes. I was told that 6 weeks is when most chicks can be accurately sexed -- so here's crossing my fingers that someone here can help! Thanks --

    1) Frida -- Silkie x EE

    2) Cricket -- Silver-laced Wyandotte

    3) Che -- Campine (this chick is nutty and a bit of a spaz also very s-l-o-w feathering)

    Again, THANK YOU for your help!!!

    Oh, and I'm going to say SLW is a pullet. The otheres I'm not familiar with.

    Great she is one of my very favorites -- and I've been watching her comb get a little pink and just holding my breath. Whew [​IMG]

    And yes that Campine is a nut! She does look quite hawkish and she has this hooked beak (hatchery flaw --I'm sure) which seriously adds to her "hawkiness"!

    This is one of my Wyandotte girls at that age.
    Edited to say maybe not a pullet. Legs are bigger and stance is different. I'm no expert, so just disregard me!!!

    hmm -- yes, I do see what you are saying -- legs are definitely bigger! Maybe I'll just have to keep waiting! Yours is very pretty!​

    I still can't get over that last one. Maybe it's a Jungle Fowl throwback. I smile every time I look at it. Just looks like a wild child!
