Can anyone help sex my chicken please? I have learnt so much from this forum but I am embarassed to admit that I still cant tell what gender mine are. They are at least 22 weeks, I have had them for 21 weeks and when I bought them they were starting to get wing feathers. At least one is laying as I have had 5 eggs so far. The first 4 eggs were smallish and dark and the 5th egg was larger and brown but paler. They may have been laying for longer than I know because they usually roam the yard from early morning until night. Lately we have been keeping them locked up until miday in the hopes of catching them laying. We have (all named after trains by my son) : Thomas- I feel she is female but I have a bit of doubt. I did catch he in the nesting box today with an egg but I didnt see (or hear) her physically lay it Percy- There is something about her face and stance that makes me feel male. Im sorry they arent great photos. James- Im not sure if she is my only female or if she is just a little less developed Thank you for any help.
