    Hi there

    I know it might be too early still, but half the fun I guess is trying to figure out whether these fluff balls are going to be boys or girls[​IMG].

    I have 3 chicks, different breeds (or so I'm told), it could just be me being hopeful but going on looks I think that they might all be girls, but then this is really my first time raising chicks, so not really an expert.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Thanks

    Too early, but I'm just guessing the GLW could be a male.

    Too early to say on gender.

    But, the first bird is not an Aracauna. It looks to have lightly feathered legs? that indicates a mixed breed bird.

    Hi all

    Its been a few weeks now and I'm still trying to figure it out.

    I'm still thinking the gold laced wyndotte (now 7 weeks) and lAracauna (mix - now 5 weeks) are girls, but look at that huge pinkish comb and wattle on the Buff Pekin (now 5 weeks), me thinks it might be a boy ??

    All look like pullets except the buff Pekin. It may be the photo, but are the leggs on your GLW gray?

    I think it's just the photo as they are quite pink in person?
