    Chicks are 5/6 days old. All the marans hate being picked up and are wild. ( not literally)
    Chick 1- I'm guessing boy from stance? He also has splayed legs, so maybe that affects posture.

    They are too young to sex.

    I wouldn't bother trying to sex them until they were at least six weeks old. Your EEs may be sexable by color as soon as they have true feathers, even if their heads aren't feathered yet.
