    Here is the only living chick from my two year old/yearling pen. Chick is out of my 2012 hen that I call Black Pea, by etiher my 2012 cock that I call Pink Pea or one of the other 2013 boys with them.

    Hatched August 20. Five days old in this picture.

    Here it is at six days old:

    Note that I'm a little worried about it's droopy wings and have raised the temp in the brooder.

    Yes! BTW, I'll be keeping this one regardless of what sex it is as it's special being the chick from peas that I hatched. [​IMG]

    Really? No one want to guess? This is just for fun and your name will be hidden, so no one will know!

    I'm an expert at guessing wrong! [​IMG]
    I change my mind every day about our littlest new guy Solly.

    But I seem to recall that we have some real bird sexing experts around here, where are they??
    Don't be shy now!

    Our peahen Mom hatched 5 babies one month ago, I think I posted pictures of them?
    Unfortunately they had a middle-of the-night predator encounter [​IMG] and now there's only Solly.
    I will have to get a picture of her (today I think she's a she).

    Is this little guy a regular IB, Kathy?
    Its back looks so dark, but maybe it's just the lighting.

    Isn't that strange? You should see it next to the others. Don't think it just the lighting, it is really dark.

    -Kathy

    And yes, it's just an IB with white flights.
