    Got a few cute pics today while cleaning their brooder :) They are 2.5 - 3 weeks old now. I have a mix of GLWs and SLWs. Straight run so not sure of the genders yet!

    This one has lots of feathers already! I'm thinking that's a sign she's a pullet? I hope!

    Love how dark this one is

    The one in the front I'm thinking is a roo...quite agressive with the other chicks and less feathering so maybe?

    This one is really quiet and docile, one of my favorites


    How long until they start showing more visible signs of gender? I was told you can usually tell for sure by 6-7 weeks. Wondering if that's true. I will say some are definitely getting their wing and tail feathers in a lot faster/sooner than others and I was told that usually pullets do that.
