    Hi, All.

    My first batch of unsexed chicks and getting to the point of thinning them down, except I have no idea how to sex them (apart from the whole egg laying thing ;). They were all a mix of Australorp, New Hampshire, Silver Wyandotte, and Dorking

    These 2 seem to be displaying some traditional rooster behaviours. I think they are mostly Australorp, but would appreciate some opionions on them. Apologies if the photos are a little dark, they wouldn't come into the sun :(
