    Hi everyone,

    We have 4 new chicks in the family. Our hen did a great job, especially as they all hatched on different days (lost the fifth that hatched).

    I know you can feather sex, not sure if it's only certain breeds. I think 2 of the 4 are too old to be feather sexed but interested in guesses etc :).

    The little black one is the youngest about 3 days old. The lightest white one about 4 days I think. The grey one about 6 and the other white one 5 days.

    Thanks :)

    I know you can't really see feathers on the black one.

    Sorry. This is the black one. All chicks have a buff Orpington daddy.
