    Here are the chicks that Dixie hatched out about 3 weeks ago. [​IMG] We have names for a couple of the chicks. All of the photos are from a few minutes ago.

    I am hoping this one is a girl. Don't most EE hens have the chipmunk pattern. If this one is a girl then I will name her Maggie.

    I know that this Barred EE is a boy because he already has a niced sized comb. But I convinced my dad to keep him. [​IMG] His name is Tucker.

    My dad is only letting me keep Tucker and any other girls but it looks like the chipmunk looking chick is our only hen right now.

    Maxx, I dont think they're all roosters, buddy. Even with being crossed, Midnight's babies seem like they could be pullets; maybe the first one is male, but not so sure about the other one. Alex's baby looks like a pullet to me. Just don't be too quick to count them all out as boys.

    Is Bucky behaving any better lately?

    At what age should I really be able to tell that they are roos or hens?

    No set time, really. I'd say by six to eight weeks, you should know on most of them.

    Hey M
    Good looking chicks. I am in agreement with Cyn that I don't think all those are boys. Old Bucky is sure looking good as are all your girls.
    For your next hatch I hear that is you hold each egg in your hand and squawk like a hen three times and crow like a rooster twice all while spinning in circles to the left that all the eggs will hatch out to be hens...........LOL
