    At what age can you start to tell gender on the Hamburgs? I have five golden-spangled. If 3 weeks is not too early I can start taking pics and posting them but if they are still too young I can wait. [​IMG]

    These aren't great photos but they are kind of hard to get pics of by myself.
    Their back feathers and head feathers are just starting to come in. I just don't know what to look for with male vs female.

    There are two Cochins in these pics also, if you have any idea what they are I would love to know also. The darker one already has more feathers. The Wyandottes I am sensing two are roos and two are pullets just by the size and coloring of their comb.

    Its hard to tell at this point, would need to wait until their hackles and neck feathers come in.
