    Do you have pics? post in the section 'what breed or gender am I'. People should be able to help you out there.

    Chances are though, it will be another 2-3 weeks before they start showing signs of gender. We still like to see chick pics though! As a tip, make sure you get a full body shot of the chicks while standing so we can see their legs, and a close up of their heads, making sure to get a good shot of their combs.

    Best of luck!
