    Hello,


    I am the new mother of 2 beautiful chicks whom we have named 'Charlie Girl & Blackie' they came to use from my son's school after they incubated them.

    They are now 3.5 weeks old are are starting to develop so quickly, its amazing how much they change!.

    Does anyone know what breed they may possibly be and whether there are any tell tale signs of either a roo or a pullet please?

    Any information anyone can give me would be fantastic as I am very new to all this chicken keeping, but so looking forward to raising them!! [​IMG]

    Blackie is a black sex link pullet.
    Charlie Girl might be a white rock, and possibly a pullet. But needs to age a few more weeks for me to say for sure.

    Thankyou okiehen for your help!!

    I am hoping you are right and I have 2 pullets, as our local council will not allow us to have Roosters in our residential backyards, I am in Melbourne Australia [​IMG]

    I will update with pics weekly and fingers crossed [​IMG]

    My guess is they are both Rocks. A Partridge and a White. I will have to wait to see Blackie feather out more to say if it is a pullet. If my guess is correct then she will have lacing all over. The other looks like a pullet too but again time will tell.. they are too young yet.
