    So, the babies decided to take a vote. They know whether they are male or female, but they wanted to see what y'all think - because they aren't telling. Pictures are named from left to right. This first pic is more because they are so darn cute as opposed to being abe to identify gender from:

    In the back, barely visible is McScreamy, and Hardy. Cutie faces are Laurel, Skunkback, and VonSneaky.

    So, What is your vote? Mom thinks maybe
    Hardy- boy
    Laurel- girl
    VonSneaky- girl
    McScreamy- boy
    Skunkback- girl
    Oh, Laurel and Hardy are 3 weeks old, and the others are 2 weeks old- a little early to tell, maybe, but really wanting some guesses.

    I would guess mostly boys based on their feathering, but I think for the most part that it is just too early to tell.

    I can see like 1 pullet. The remainder look like roos.

    Well, give it some time. It's possible they may be girls that just look more boyish at this stage. Don't give up hope yet!

    I have no idea on the genders, but I think they are all darn cute - and I love their names!

    I was under the impression that males feather out a little later than the females. Hardy was the first to get feathers, and McScreamy is just now getting a little tail. I mean, tail feathers. McScreamy also has little pointys on his comb where trhe others don't. Hardy has tiny little pink wattles showing up.

    are they sexlinks, if so the red ones are females, the lighter ones are males, if they are the ones mixed with a delaware hen, the males are white with some red on the shoulders
