    Much too young, give them about 3-4 weeks for a first tentative guess and then again at about 10 weeks if there are any iffy ones that could go either way.

    Are you asking for their sex? Did you buy them from a hatchery? They're usually right on sexing.

    I think the only ones I could even try to sex that young would be the barred rocks and it would have to be from pictures of their headspots when they're only a couple of days old.

    Sorry - I know how hard it is to wait until they grow to see if they're a boy or girl. I have an easter egger in my brooder that I'm watching too.
