    Hi,
    I am curious if it is possible to tell the gender of the chicks? I have two of them.

    Here are some pictures:

    They may be too young right now, but does anybody know how I can be able to tell in the future?

    Thanks!

    I have good news for you and bad news for you. Yes it can be done with chicks this age, bad news is, i cant do it! I hope someone on here who can do it sees your post and helps you out. They are young but if i had to guess, and this is just a guess, id say Male, male and female. Again those are guesses but i have been raising pheasants for many years.

    I always had to wait until 3 to 4 weeks. the cock will have small spur bumps.

    What types of pheasants are they? That would help with the sex of the chicks.

    Hi, thank you all for responding. They are ring neck pheasant chicks. I am really new to this, so sorry for asking this, but what is a spur bump?

    A spur, like on a rooster of a chicken, is located on the back of the leg and is used by the rooster for fighting. Since it is the males that have them, youll be able to see them developing on the chick's legs.
