    I have 2 pekins about 3 weeks old both born on the same day. One is significantly larger than the other like 2 inches bigger. Could the bigger one be a boy? Or did one hit a growth spurt early

    It will be easier to tell if we have pics [​IMG] Otherwise I would listen to the voices..the boys are raspy and the girls are loud.Yours a probably still a little young for voice sexing yet....

    Quote:One does make a really loud high pitched call sometimes while the other does seem to be a bit quieter and raspier, don't have my camera with me right now otherwise I'd take a picture [​IMG]
