Lavender Orpington was a single hatch, used a mirror, stuffed toy & feather duster until I found company (Silkie). They were hatched about a day apart, making 4 wks this Thursday. Like everyone else with chicks wondering what I have, hoping they both are pullets. I've done the "turn on back & watch if they extend legs or draw up", they draw their legs up (pullets, yippee). At 3 days tried "feather sexing", will admit not sure what I was doing but both looked like the primary feathers were longer than the coverts (pullets, wishful thinking). The Lavender has a comb & waddle but it's yellow, not pink or red, tail feathers & back are feathering, it's more timid but will come to me (mealworm training)....Pullet or Cockerel? The Silkie's really sweet, loves to cuddle & be handled. Wing feathers are out, the back is starting but nothing on the tail yet. I've felt for a comb but it's smooth and don't see anything. It's "bolder" will come right up to me, never had a Silkie so this is all new for me. Pullet of Cockerel?
