    My chicks are 5 weeks old today, what do you think they are boys or girls?

    1st is my Splash Orpington, what do you think? Boy?

    2nd one of my Black Amaraucanas, what do you think? This one has a wider and pinker comb then the other (hard to tell in the pics).

    And lastly, this is my favorite and the one I most hope is a hen. It was born looking very rooish! I tried not to get attached, but what can I do? So anyway, to me, I wouldn't say it looks more henish, but it does seem to look alittle less rooish as it's gotten older, it's comb is not as wide as the other ones, and it's more flesh colored!

    To me they still look too young to tell. If I had to guess though... they all look pretty girly.

    First one looks like a roo. The other two are hard to tell. They look girlish to me though.
