    Ive had two white chicks and three browns for a week.They were all suppose to be pullets but the one brown one seems to be growing bigger and faster than its siblings.Maybe a rooster? I noticed it had the pin feathers days ago and the other two browns are just mabe getting some.
    Im happy with these hatchery birds from a local CAL-ranch store.The white ones grow quiker from what i see. Im going to try and add pictures,some are a few days old in the box and the newest is on a table.

    no sexing at this stage, the white ones will grow up to be white leghorns and the brown will grow to be normal light brown leghorns

    I just remember reading something about people able to sex chickens based on feather growth.I have limited experience but my last hatch,the two roosters grew faster and bigger,it wasnt hard to figure out.
