New to the whole poultry scene, our chicken math collection started off with one of those hatching eggs programs for the kids and has grown alot since :D currently our four oldest chickie babes are 6 weeks old so we are trying our best to work out the sex, this one little babe has been baffling us so i thought i would turn to the trusty backyardchickens crew for some opinions :) we think it is an australorp but more then likely some kind of australorp mix, we do know that there was crosses of australorp, isa brown, white leghorn, rhode island red and new hampshire! Any gender opinions on this little black babe would be appreciated :) :) :)

I agree it doesn’t have any big indicators yet, but I think the reddish colored one looks more suspect! Might get some better shots of that one, the color is looking pretty red for their age :)

Thanks again guys 🤗 the very red look to the red one (nutella) may have had something to do with the garage lighting or my camrea, being in the outside coop today nutella didnt look any where near as red 🤔🤷‍♀️😅 i will definitely post some updates in 2-3 weeks 😄 by then i will have more different 6 week old chicks that i will probably want opinions on as well 😂
