    I tried my hand at incubating eggs for the first time a couple weeks ago. I only got one BLRW chick out of it. So..of course I had to get a couple friends for my lone chick. I got 2 Black Austrlorps that are supposed to be pullets. I'm not so sure! One grew wing and tail feathers very quickly and the other is way behind on feathering. The one behind on it's feathers is also starting to get a comb. I'm afraid my girl is a boy! They're a little over 2 weeks so I know it's early..just thought I'd get some opinions.

    Your BLR (splash variety), looks to have really thick legs...may be a roo. And we think #2 is a roo too.

    Most guesses at this age are untrustworthy. At 5 weeks, guesses are much more accurate.
