    Greetings from No. GA. All the kids are growing like nuts! The Light Brahma's are getting huge and the Buff's are toddling right behind....Love it! But I need to determine their sex and fast. They are approx. 7 weeks old now and they are so freaking smart. The third night in their new ( huge ) run and coop, by the beginning of dusk they all paraded into the coop...I was thrilled. Please someone set me straight. I have looked at dozens of pix but they are when they are fully grown and I can't wait for 2 more months to week out the roosters. Thanks all

    Hey thanks Lone Wolf, that's the plan as soon as it stops raining! On a side note, our last name is "Wolf" and my husband has a very cool patch on his vest that says; "lone wolf" so, good choice! LOL>>>> thanks again.

    When you post pictures DO mention age - it's very important in sexing chicks.
