    These chicks are a little over 3 weeks old. They are mutts, but still so cute! Just wondering if anyone has any early guesses to gender?

    Do they have the same parentage? If not, what are the guesses?

    The little one with a stubby tail might be a roo.

    Any of these 4 could be the mother, I wasn't home when they hatched and dh is color blind and doesn't know what color egg shell they came from. DOH!

    The smaller, slower to feather is the rooster?

    That was my guess so far too?

    I think it is odd that he has yellow legs as none of my chickens have yellow legs. Genetics can be so weird.

    I agree, the one with the long tail looks like a pullet and the one with the shorter tail looks more like a boy. They're cute! [​IMG]
