    We picked up our chicks and the man gave my daughter a chick he called a Phoenix, but said it could be a boy or girl.
    We can only keep hens. The chicks are now 13 days old, and we tried to compare photos of vent and feather sexing, realizing it's complicated [​IMG]
    This chick is noisy!

    Our hope is that someone familiar with Phoenix can give us their best opinion of whether it's a boy or girl, so we can re-home before the kids get too attached.
    We didn't hurt the little one getting the vent picture- promise!
    Here are pictures.
    thanks

    I'll cross my fingers on a Silver colored female! I make no promises at that age though.

    I think you have a roo because of the long neck, body language and, comb development. He will be gorgeous and somebody will want him. I have four roosters, all different breeds, and I actually like them better than hens :)
     
  6. It's a bit early to tell, wait a bit and keep us posted. If I had to guess, I'd say cockerel.
