    I'll get pics up once my computer stops having issues-- but we hatched five Old English Bantams yesterday, and I was wondering if it was ever possible to tell what sex they are at this age by color?

    We have two golden chipmunky ones
    One silver chipmunk
    One pale yellow
    and one Reddish-yellow

    Any thoughts?

    it depends on what color they are (i.e. silver duckwing, BBR, quail, etc.) I know you can with the silver duckwing. More people will be by to give you better info. YOu will get more answers when you post pics
