    3 Barred rock babies. I know one is a boy and I think the other 2 are girls. Hopefully there will be more piped when I get home tonight. I will keep you posted.

    I got a quick question and one that I asked my hubby earlier but he didn't know...how do you tell the sex of chicks when born???
    It would be nice to know if there is a way outside of roosters comb.

    That's good news, Adam! Ruffle, most breeds, you cant tell, but Barred Rocks have a color sexing thing we go by that works most of the time.

    Well the fifth did not make it (probably for the best). I had one piped this morning Day 22 so we will see. I think I have 2 girls and 2 boys.
