    after another week, which I think is week three, I'm hoping this is a hen - she is just such a character - her legs look darker now - you an see another chick in the back that we picked up at the same time, but her legs aren't noticeable - any guesses on what they are? in the front are golden laced Wyandotte chicks, our brahmas and easter eggers - all from Agway and very loved[​IMG]

    I'm thinking cockerel, too, based on the light barring.

    Meh. It does look to have some lighter barring, but there's still more dark than white. I'd give it a few weeks and see how things look.
