    Knowing my luck it is, but oh well at least I can show off my baby's :D
    They were all born on the 17th and 18th, there only a week old.

    I have a Buff Orphington, golden laced wyandotte cross: (For the record, show a baby chick a diamond and it will do anything you want it to, including stay still!)

    Is it to early to guess? No. You have a 50/50 chance of being right. Sorry, couldn't resist. [​IMG]

    There's another one I heard about holding the chick's neck between your thumb and pointer finger, males kick, females go limp. Is that true?
