    I'm thinking I have 4 Pullets. 3 weeks old. Legs all have dark on front, but to varying degrees. I hope the pictures are good enough. They really didn't care for my phone being so close to them. LOL

    In the batch is also 4 Buff Orpington and 2 Americauna (sp?) if anyone has a guess on those.

    In order for us to accurately sex your chicks, you need to photograph their heads one by one and number them so we not which chicken we are dealing with.

    Better but still not great, sorry! In order to sex them we need a good photo of each ones' comb and wattles as looking at their development is the best way to sex chicks of this age. :)
