    I have 20 chicks that are 4 weeks old, and were sold to me as being the following breeds : Gold laced wyandottes, silver laced wyandottes, buff orpingtons, ameraucanas, and marans. I am a complete newbie, and would love input as to gender and breed. I am having trouble posting pics, so I'll split them up. Thanks in advance!

    I'm sorry to say, but all of them are too young to tell. Chick #7 is looking suspicious but I wouldn't go drawing any conclusions for several more weeks.
    One thing is for certain though: they are super cute![​IMG]

    Mountain peeps, thanks for the reply. I wondered if they were too young to tell gender, but what about breed?

    agree with Mountain Peeps, too young to sex and ID breed

    Okay, thanks. I'll give them a few weeks to grow, then repost. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy how cute they are!
