    We got our first chicks about 4 weeks ago, and I'm not sure exactly how old they are. Does anyone have any ideas if they are roosters or pullets?? Or can anyone tell me how to tell? I'm not sure if they are still too young or not, first timer here :) it won't let me add multiple images for some reason so I'll add pictures in comments. [​IMG]

    They do look like they're about 4 weeks old. The best and most accurate time to tell if they're boys or girls is around 6-10 weeks.
