    I'm not so sure about the second, but Peaches is definitely male. Mr. Peaches. [​IMG]

    Once, we were new at cats and had this kitten we named Fifi. Then we found out is was male - Mr. Fi. [​IMG]

    Lol!!! One reason I am worried about Daisy is because she/he has a bit of redness on the wattle if you look close enough... Oh well I guess I'll have to get myself some more pullets:)

    Chicken math! Yeah, I agree Daisy is suspicious. Just not 100% yet.

    I do have one more question... This chick is pretty much always standing like this. Its because she's constipated. I've tried to help for awhile but it always comes back. She can use the restroom enough to stay alive but not enough to be comfortable. Do you know if it's possible for a chicken to have tied intestines or their intestines not be as big as they should be? I'm just wondering. Her excretion always comes out smaller than the average chick of her size.

    Uh oh, that doesn't look good. I think it's possible, but I don't have experience with that.

    I'd separate the chick, put electrolytes in her water, monitor her weight to make sure she isn't losing. Could she have cocci? Is the poop watery or normal but small?

    If you paid extra for guaranteed pullet - then the seller owes you a full refund
