    Hello all! It may be too early to tell but was wondering if anyone could guess the genders on my 4 week old buttercup and polish chicks [​IMG]

    also, since Buttercup hens and roos feather so differently can you tell by the way they feather in if they are male or female?

    I'm sorry I can't help with the sex of your birds but I just had to say that the Tolbunt Polish is the most fabulous bird I may have ever seen!! He/she will be sensational in a few weeks.
