I hatched out a few chicks a few weeks ago. They are 6 weeks and two days old today. I also hatched a second batch with 3 that are younger, those three are not included in todays game.

First is Lily (Lucas). He is a boy, sadly.
Second is Dandy. She is a girl. @TheOddOneOut @Overo Mare @FluffyLambs @Granny Hatchet
Third is Poppy. Another girl.
Fourth is Marigold. Another girl?

Each have 2 photos. They are being raised by a broody, so taking pictures was a risk...

I have also conducted a few experiments with them. Tail length/wing length and tail growth/ wing growth does NOT work for sexing. I am also not yet sure if pin feather sexing works for mixes, I have to look back at my guesses.

Looks like you have three pullets so far.
fingers crossed! I really want to see Marigold as a female. Most of those crosses I see turn out to be males...I would love to see what the cross looks as a female. Still learning genetics, so I am not exactly sure why the lacing is silver, not gold.

The lacing is also odd
