    Okay, so the chickies are 6 weeks old now. I think that I should be able to tell the sex, but I can't!!! [​IMG]

    Soooooo.... a little help please??

    If you look really close you can see the pink under his chin (waddle maybe?) Do only males get the waddle? Help!! :|

    Oh...and here's one more, this one doesn't have as big of a comb as the first (it would NOT just look at the camera! [​IMG])

    any help is appreciated [​IMG]

    I only see 1 picture. It is very hard to tell from your picture. Can you also get a close-up of the head? That would really help.

    I'm no help.

    I have 18 BR and RIRs that are 8 weeks old and I can't tell the gender. I guess I'm going to have to wait for crowing and laying.

    They're cute, though. Love the frizzle!
