    I'm a true amateur... I have my idea based on their vents but wondering if any of you can tell by comb or if it's too early? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    [​IMG] Realistically, it is far too early to tell. Post pictures as they mature, and someone will be able to help you. Any 'guess' right now would be exactly that - a guess.

    Can anybody help me sex my 2 little chicks. They will be 5 weeks old on Friday. One is a black Australorp and the other a Sussex. As you can see from the pictures the BA is a little bigger than the Sussex and hopefully she does have a slight tinge of pink/red in her comb and little red wattles. Both of their combs are about the same size. I know BA, regardless of sex have more advanced combs and wattles. Any help would be great. Fingers crossed for 2 hens. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
