    Hi, everyone!
    I'm not expecting any miracles but I thought I'd see if anyone has an opinion of what sex my 2 light Sussex chicks may be. I know they are at that "in between" age for sexing. They are both 10 days old but I am hoping that wing feather pattern may give a hint. :D

    Any help is appreciated!

    I am uploading pics now.

    It is too young to determine gender on these birds. Wing feather sexing only works on certain crosses that are bred for it. Post more photos when they are at least 4 weeks old, and we should be able to help. [​IMG]

    I agree with Wyandottes7. Too young to say.

    Just so I'm clear, what you're all saying is that they are too young to tell? J/k lol
    I had a feeling it was too soon and I was being over zealous!
    I guess I was just hoping to avoid getting too attached to a little roo and end up having to give him up. :/ Only time will tell....
    I'll be to back to bug you all in a few weeks;)

    Ok, it's been a few weeks and the chicks are growing so fast!
    One of my 2 is definitely a little roo and has been rehomed. The remaining chick seems like a pullet but I'm hoping someone can give me their educated opinion!
