    How old is it? My only experience with those is from one that I raised, so let me know how old it is and I'll compare to pictures of mine.

    They are about 6 weeks old :)
    I've had others say the brown looks to be a male but the little yellow one is a mystery haha!

    Still a little to young for bs sexing. Give this one a few more weeks. I agree with Kathy on the first one, rooster [​IMG].

    Agree with Gerald, 8 weeks is the minimum for determining sex with certainty. Some people have their pet methods but they're not proven since after all it's a 50/50 chance you're right.

    Just sold a bunch of 12, and of those 12 I was sure that 8 were female and 2 were male when they were only a week old. Two of the 12 i wasn't sure about, so just for grins I held onto them and looks like i sexed 10 of 12 correctly at 1 week.

    So what are the odds of me guessing the sex of 10 correctly? I'll ask Mr. Math (DH), cause I'm sure he'll know.
