    I have to go now but please still help with your thoughts if you think you might know i realy hope that they are both hen as if its a cockrel i wont be able to keep it in the garden and it will have to go down to the farm. Also the one of the chicks the light susex in there as a bright red comb even tho it is only a few weeks old.

    Hello Gav,
    Nice to hear from you again, I was wondering if you'd been washed away!!
    IMO top picture looks like a cockerel (lots of red), but I hope I'm wrong; if she is old enough she might just be getting ready to lay! 2nd looks like a pullet, but if they're different ages it's not so easy to tell......as for the chicks [​IMG]

    I hope you had an easier time with this hatch!

    neck feathers usually give away the males.

    the neck feathers after the molt are pointy on males and rounded on females. some pictures show this really well. yours looks rounded on the first but I could not fully tell. one of the easiest and fastest and painless (all around) to tell if they are male or female!

    I have seen them on 13 week chicks in pictures. they are beautiful anyway!

    Not really that easy to tell with them all scrunched up but it looks like that first one is a roo? The feathers seam a bit more pointed to me and the redness is a sign if they are the same age. But You may have to give them a bit more time. Very pretty.

    Just been looking at my dates and the top chicken is 12 weeks old now and the 2nd one is a bit less im not to sure i got it off a friend as it has curly toes and its legs are in a bad was when it walks so i thought i would give it a go to see how it gets on. Does 12 weeks make a diffrence to anyones thoughts?

    And yes i did have a lot better 2nd hatch i had all the ones in the 3rd pic hatch out of 7 fertile eggs so i was very happy there just at the messy stage now lol.
