    I hatched this chick out about 2 months ago, yes I know it maybe still to young to know the actual gender, it still has a lot of filling out to do
    I am only asking as I have a family member interested in "her"


    This chick looks a lot like my silkie girl Lucky when she was about 2 months old.
    Any guesses at this stage would be great thanks [​IMG]

    Oh should I not let the chick go til im 100% sure of its gender? I am thinking of waiting until late January before letting it go good idea?
