    So we have 5 five week olds and though I have some suspicions I could use some help, this being the first time we've raised unsexed chicks.
    here are some pi


    chick one. Silver laced Wyandotte, pretty pink on top, thinking cockerel?

    Now here's why I start to get confused cuz this is our Sexlink and she's the reddest on top[​IMG]


    Here's where I cross my fingers and think I'm deluding myself, this is our Cochin, chick 2, the only Cochin we have so nothing to compare to but thats a pretty big and pink right? say it's a girl please[​IMG]

    heres a different view

    Chick 3, Ameraucana, thinking girl?

    Chick 4, another Ameraucana, much bigger than 3, in fact biggest of all chicks, but no sign of red on top..... big girl?

    The last 2 are pullets, the first 2 are cockerels. And I have got to say, the Cochin looks like a pullet.
     
  3. No matter how hard I try, I can never come close to this level. It seems like magic to me!

    I can tell a cockerel...when they crow. :))

    Impressive!
