    Being new to raising chickes I'm wondering if we have any Roos in the mix. 4 week old Welsummer, Easter Egger (buff coloring), Black Astrolorp, Silver laced Wyandotte. The SLW comb has turned a little pink. What are your thoughts? [​IMG]

    I didn't get the picture but I have to say with a mix of breeds, 4 weeks is way too young to be able to tell.
    Even with all the same breed those breeds won't show this early. The only ones you can tell this early are the huge combed breeds.

    Absolutely! Thanks. My daughter is really nervous since we can't keep a Roo here and she's getting attached to these cuties

    The photo isn't working for me, but I agree that four weeks is too young to accurately sex your chicks.

    My chicks are 6+ weeks now. Here are some updates pictures. What do you think? I'm especially curious about my black Australorp. [​IMG]

    They are all looking like pullets so far.
