    Hi a;; - I'm new to raising chicks, and am wondering if you would mind commenting on what you think this little Wheaten Maran cutie is. He/she is 2.5 weeks old. We only got two hatched from a batch of 6 fertile eggs (unfortunately the other chick passed away at day 3), so hoping for a pullet.

    Thanks

    It's too early to tell the gender, sorry! If you repost updated pictures in another month or so, we could tell you.

    I know this is old but I’m hoping you’ll answer with what the chick ended up being? Our wheaten looks just like this
