    I have 5 chicks that I would love to know the gender of, 2 x polish, 1 x wyandotte partridge bantam and 2 x silkies (I would also like to know what colour the silkies will be). They are all 4 weeks except the bigger polish which is 5 weeks.

    Thanks everyone :)

    4 weeks is a little young to be making guesses on gender YET, IMHO. But roolings will start getting noticably pinker combs in most cases, long before their similarly aged 'sisters' will.

    You've got a lovely bunch of youngsters there. That older Polish is a hoot to look at. Somewhere between Einstein and 'stuck my tongue in a light socket'. [​IMG]

    Its an awfully hard call so young... I have had luck with the flip em over sexing method. I was told if when you flip em over, they suck their little legs up to their chest its a hen and if they let their legs extending away from their body its likely a roo. Doesn't seem like an accurate method but I've had about a 90+ percent success rate doing it that way.

    Its too young to tell. However, the first bird's comb is a little red, so my guess would be male. The Polish looks like a female so far. As for the Silkie, its way too young to tell.
