    Hi All, I'm very new to having my own backyard chickens and have just got my first pair of chicks. They are 4/5 weeks old and I was wondering if any of you experts can identify the breed and more importantly the sex!?!

    I'll be in the barn!
    I'm not 100% sure on the breed, but I DO know that they both look like litle cockerels

    thanks for letting me know! I'll probably have to take them to the local farm, as I can't have crowing cockerels my neighbours might lose their mind!! chick 1 seems to have a "pea comb" after doing a bit of research, so I'm going to remain optimistic! Chick 2 however has a pretty well defined comb and little feathers!

    Chick 1 looks like a silver laced wyandotte. I don't have a guess on the breed of the second chick.

    Edit: and probably cockerels, but may as well wait a while to be sure
