I just purchased two "Designer Breed" chicks (by designer breed I mean free-range mutts, ha) from a reputable well known breeder. Purchased them straight run and was wondering if anyone would venture a guess at sex. They are roughly 3 weeks old. The first one is a Barred-Rock/ Buff Orpington mix. I know roughly how to sex BPR chicks with the black wash on the leg, the head spot, and the wing barring but I cant quite figure this one out because the mess of Orpington in it. The second is a Barred-Rock/ Rhode Island Red cross and it too is a bewilderment to me. I don't know anything about sexing or possibility of sexing a RIR or Orpington. The BPR/Orp has the black wash on its legs and its chest feathering seems Female but the wings sort of throw me off. And half it's head is Buff so its hard to tell but there is a spot of white on it but for three weeks the comb seems very red. I am at a lost with the RIR/BPR. Haha, Enjoy the pictures.... pose down and the back "act like you hate each other" voyeur shot lets see those legs (sh*tty picture sorry" The little one you see behind them is a sexed pullet Ameraucana...not sure of the coloring tho, it sort of looks like a chipmunk. Im thinking either Wheaten or brown/red...we shall see. Thanks for looking and keep them guesses a comin'.
