    I'm new to BYC and like many I'm concerned that my chicks might actually be dudes. I purchased three Easter eggers from a local feed store and I'm pretty convinced at least two of the three are male. Can anyone help me figure this out? Also, is there a place on this site or the web that shows chicken breeds by age? I think one of my silver laced Wyandotte is not in fact a silver laced Wyandotte. Any help would be greatly appreciated [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! What cute chicks you have there! I see you have posted in the what breed gender section, I'm sure members there will be able to help you. Wishing you the very best of luck with them in the future and fingers crossed they are pullets.

    Enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Very cute birds!! It looks like there MIGHT be a "dude" in there, LOL, BUT....don't believe everyone that tells you that one of them is a cockerel. I had a hen that developed VERY fast and everyone here told me for sure she was a he. Well, the bird turned out to be a she, so I am glad I didn't fall for her quick development!

    Enjoy your babies and welcome to our flock! :)
