    Hello everyone. I have two peachicks that hatched on August 29th, and I want to know if I am able to identify their genders. I hope it's a boy and a girl, but they look about the same. I'll post pics soon.

    Is there any way to identify the gender at this age?

    You hatched those *yesterday*? Those look like peachicks that are several weeks old.... have I gone through a wormhole to the past?

    If you hatched them July 29th, then I'd give them another week or two and try to get some still pictures. The video is very dark and it's hard to see the wings. They look like IB chicks, and the one on the left looks more female to me... but someone who's better at sexing should probably say something.

    Woah, where did I get August 29th!? I meant August 5th. I'm just hoping we at least get one male.
