    Hi All,

    So I've finally chosen the two chicks that i'm keeping(if you are curious I started with 8, six are for friend) and i'm curious as to their sex. I'm quite a newbie and i'm not sure if its still too early to tell the sexes by looking at them. They are three weeks old and they are named Skittle and Nugget. Skittle is the bigger one on the right(pic below) I have a odd feeling that Skittle is a 'he' and Nugget a 'she' but what do you guys think? I'd appreciate any advice/ideas you have.

    Thanks for your time.

    Partridge Brahmas can be sexed by coloring. Males feather in with solid black chests. Patterning through the chest is a female specific trait.
