    We acquired 2 living eggs. these Beasts are now 18/19 days old. very lively and seem healthy. weighing in at 162g and 198g. can anyone give me a clue as to wether hen or roo? was told they're a hybrid brown egg layer...unsure if this helps. one is much more dominant than the other[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    At 18-19 days old, sexing is not possible by appearance. As they get older (over the next three weeks) a rooster's comb and wattles will become larger. A hen/pullet will not have that happen until close to egg laying age (5-6 months).
