    Hi.
    I was hoping to get an idea of sex of these 3-4 week old chicks. They are probably heading to a new home this week and the BYC member taking them was hoping to get an idea of what he was getting into!! Thanks!

    they are too young for me to tell but are the frizzles parents both frizzles? because that causes them to be frazzle and not have many feathers it might be that the picture just makes the frizzle look like it has less feathers just wondering.
    Good Luck Nice birds,
    Henry

    Hi Henry--the frizzle are not from two frizzles, they are Dipsy's, only one parent is a frizzle. I think it is just the feathering in.......they still have a lot of baby feathers on them.
