    Hello all,
    This is my first time posting here. I have gotten 6 chicks of varying breeds and have grown especially attached to our Delaware. I can't have roosters where I live and am worried it's a boy. I know it is a bit early. She is 2-3 weeks, but according to other threads, a stripe on the tail means it's a boy. I am praying she isn't because she/ he sits in my lap, jumps on my shoulder and doesn't mind being picked up. Here are some pictures, let me know if I should upload any others. Thanks so much!!!
