    Chipmunk is female, spot on head is male. Anything that is hard to tell should not be bred.

    [​IMG] Boy (left) and girl still a bit wet from hatch (right). Not only color stands out, but already they are showing obvious stance differences

    It's also worth noting that they feather out differently as well. So you can still sex them after they lose their newborn "fluff". That's something that can't be done with some breeds. Bielefelders are truly amazing in every way.

    Just put half a dozen more Biel eggs in the incubator. These are replacement eggs from the breeder I'd purchased the "dud" eggs from. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get a better than 3% hatch rate from her eggs this time. [​IMG]

    Baby Bielefelder bedtime. These birds are 6 weeks old.
    There's also a Legbar cockerel tucked in.
