    This is my buff/Easter egger chick. He/she has always been bigger than the others and is more bold as well. The chicks are a little over 8 weeks old. Can anyone tell yet?

    Thank you that's what I was thinking too. Any advice on how to keep him friendly? He tolerates being held, but is more wary than the other chicks. I adopted a rooster from a family member that I eventually had to rehome because he was so aggressive. He was already at least 8 months when I took him though. I don't want that to happen with this little guy.what can I do?
