    Geez... I haven't had chickies in forever [​IMG] and my last post wasn't exactly very clear either... I am very worried since Tweetie in my last post was called a HE and right now "she" is larger than her two siblings and I am just worried because I am not sure she is growing faster so looks different than the other two (doesn't help that they are all diff looking either) sooo.... I am crossing my fingers cuz I don't want to break my Nephews heart but I need the truth here >..< aaacK!!! Soo frustrating... so here are the "girls" please confirm or deny their sexes for me I will try and be strong!

    First contender is Peck

    Second contender is Twitchie

    aaaand finally... the one I fear the most [​IMG]

    Last contender is Tweetie (who has grown much faster than the other two and always steals all the protein up before the other two)
    here is a REALLY good close up of the face

    They're still too young for me to offer an educated guess. Best of luck! I hope that what you have is what you want! [​IMG]

    I see. Anyone else think they can give it a go? I don't know what a huge sign would be for roo except for crowing and a giant comb and right now I am not sure if I see a giant comb or not but it freaks me out that this chickie (Tweetie) is huge compared to the other two right now

    I say girls too. I am new at this, but I think the combs would be more red if they were boys.

    omg omg I do hope they are girls! Thanks for at least giving me some perk for the day [​IMG] at least two people said girls now *wheew* now I wont have to think about breaking anyone's hearts right now (esp since my youngest Nephew is the one most attached to the chickies and he is the one who's chickie was looking suspicious) hehe okay [​IMG] thanks for giving me a boost today everyone! Yay! Time to go buy chicken food!

    I would say girls too....give it a few more weeks, see if the combs start to pink up...good luck!

    I bought 9 from a local feed store last year, from the pullet pen...guess what...9 roos!
    Now I have 16 new ones, I special ordered and drove 5 hours to get...all but 2 are roos! yeah!

    Good luck to you, keep us posted!
