    How good are you at guessing the gender of young chicks? Now is your chance to put your skills to the test, for the chance to win! 14 chicks are the contestants, all the exact same age. All chicks are exactly 10 days old at the time of these pictures. This is to leaven the playing field. Few, if any, gender defining characteristics have risen yet. Take a gander, and guess the gender of each chick. The member with the most correct guesses wins!

    Contest ends July 3rd, midnight CST when all chicks will be 8 weeks old.
    You may edit your guess as many times as you wish until the deadline. Guesses edited after the deadline will be disqualified.

    There are 3 pictures of each chick. All taken the same day. 3 angles are presented. Bird's eye view, side profile and comb. Each bird is ID'd. Photos are uploaded as thumbnails. Click to enlarge.

    The prize is a painting of a pair of chickens of any breed/variety the winner requests. One variety/breed only, do not mix and match. I am not a professional painter, but will try my best. It will be styled like

    I like it better without update photos, more suspense! I can't wait to see what they look like grown out not even their genders! They all look amazing!

    I’ll need a fresh night for this contest. Been cruising the net at least 2 hours so my eyes are a bit strained. Maybe tomorrow :p

    Can’t wait to see them all growed up! Well, 8 weeks anyhow. They won’t have many spots/mottling at that age but will be interesting to see gender differences.
