    :cdHow can you tell the difference between the cock and hen at just a few days old. I am very very new to all of this and I know with my guineas you cant tell until they are 6 weeks. I am planning on getting a Buff Orpington, a Silkie, and maybe even a Brahma or 2 for being my keet mamas. What are a few keys signs I'm getting a hen? Thanks Much

    It's tough at a few days old. You can always post pictures for us to look at. Some people here are very good at sexing chicks.
    Besides, whether they are old enough to sex or not, we ALL love looking at baby pics! [​IMG]
