    Okay I have had boy chicks before some of them just stand out because they "walk" and have posture like a boy.

    I have a 3 week old EE chick I'm crossing my fingers and toes is a pullet, was purchased as a sexed pullet and should end up solid white, I was so excited!

    but I look at this chick with it's hatch-mate and all I can think about is MALE <G>

    when I get back from the weekend I will take pictures, but I know it is still very young,

    just curious how people have found "posture" to be the first give away on which sex.

    I don't have very many birds to compare, but one of my BRs stood like a rooster very early on. In fact, the first couple times I posted pics in this section, almost everyone said they believed it to be a rooster. Turned out it is a pullet, so the posture thing doesn't always mean roo.

    I'm SO HOPING
    the chick stands so tall and just reminds me of BOY <G> and looks at me in that rooster way LOL
    I will try not to stare at the chick every day <G> and just see how it goes.
    so far legs seem to be the same size as the other chick............ oh well! time will tell, crossing my fingers!
