    Help me please. I have two gorgeous chicks who are four wleeks old and we are doubting that they are both girls as we were told. Can anyone please help.

    Here is the little cochin. I am really worried about 'her' because she has a little red in her wattles now. He/she is very placid with us but I have noticed a bit of fighting with the Aracauna (I was told it was an Aracauna but I understand they are quite rare so it may be an easter egger)

    Here's the Aracauna. I think she's a girl..

    And one of both...

    Please help as I'd really like to know soon as I'm getting so attached to these cuties and we're not allowed roosters.

    Thanks so much guys. sniff, sniff :-( .... at least we know now and not in a few months time.

    I'm going to try and find them a good home.

    I'm not going to get any more from that hatchery as out of the five chickens they sexed as hens, three are roosters!
