    This chick was hatched January 8th so it is about 4 1/2 weeks old now. I've got my fingers crossed for a pullet. I took over incubating this chick on day 20 when I sold my broody hen who had killed all but one egg so I'm a bit attached to this one. Is it still too early to tell? I know Buff Orpingtons tend to be difficult to sex.
