    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new member to this site although in the past I have spent many hours reading the forums and have found them to be very helpful.

    I was hoping to get some help in sexing my 4 week old French Wheaton Marans chick. I can't decide whether it's too dark to be a girl or too light to be a boy.
    Hopefully the pictures have worked for me.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    :)

    Thanks guys. That's kinda what I was leaning towards but was hoping to be wrong. At least I have a good home for him to go to if you turn out to be right.
