    I'm sort of new to sexing chicks, so I have no idea. We have only raised silkies in the past, and I certainly couldn't tell with them.
    We hatched out 3 sizzle chicks 5 weeks ago. One I can tell is a boy, he has a very red comb and wattles and acts like a roo, but the other 2 I'm not sure about. I'm afraid they may all be boys. [​IMG] Any help is appreciated, I tried to get the best pictures I could. Thank you!

    Hmmm... Sizzle #1 looks like a pullet, but the redness is really throwing me off.

    Sizzle #2 just seems roo-ish.

    Both roos perhap?

    Quote:It's hard to tell in the pictures, but #1's comb is pink and #2's is more red. I'm afraid that even the pinkness of #1 means it's a roo. [​IMG]
    Thank you for the help.

    They are very cute! I have some too and can only have hens so I feel your pain if they are both roos![​IMG]
