    There's 2 chicks in question here:
    Both chicks in question were born 01.01.11 - so they're 10 weeks old.

    The first one is a cross between a dark brahma and a turken.

    It has fairly large wattles but the comb is small and flesh colored. That's the part that confuses me. I still think it's a roo but thought I'd post on here and see what y'all think:

    The second one I'm 99% certain is a roo, but it has NO WATTLES? What the heck?

    I've been wrong before... but I'm guessing two pullets....

    I think they are both pullets too. I could tell my Impy was a turken roo at two weeks old, same with his son.

    Thanks for the look and responses... now I'm even more confused. I was thinking you guys were going to smack me for even contemplating girls here...

    That poor chicken. Someone stole the feathers off its neck and stuck them on its legs!

    In my humble experience, my boys have been very discernible by 8 weeks, already crowing with big red combs. My guess is girls too. Fingers crossed for you!

    Now those are some strange girls. Mate them to Gritsar's Impy and goodness only knows what you might get. Scarey.[​IMG]
