    Hi, I'm fairly new to chickens, not had one since I was about 7, so I'm not sure on the gender or breed of our new chicks? They're 18 days old, and really friendly with each other. We hope they're both girls as we are not allowed to keep males in our area due to noise complaints.

    I've tried to add a photo of each chick but I'm not sure it's worked as I'm very new to the forum.

    Chick one, Nugget, has a gold head and is starting to get brown feathers on her chest and has sort of very pale brown and white wings.

    Chick two, Chocobo, has a yellow head and brown feathers on her chest and wings.

    I was just wondering whether anyone knows the breed and gender of the two of them?

    Thanks

    They are the same breed and they look to be a sexlink of some sort or a egg production breed. They are hard to tell gender right now but I'll go with pullet for now.

    Far to young still. Try posting pics at 6-8 weeks of age.

    The brown colour on the wings looks like a production brown (I have one she is a great egg layer) not sure if they are male or female as they are still a bit young. Maybe a photo of the front of the face would be good in a 2weeks time might have more of a idea then

    They both appear to be Production red crosses (most likely Red sex-links) I would post again in another week when we can tell better.

    Hello, little update!
    They're now nearly a month old, they'll be a month on the 18th. And they're growing really well, we've moved them outside though they still come in during the night so they're warmer.
    Just wondering if anyone can tell us anything more about them yet?

    They are too young to tell gender
