    Hard to tell at that age, but I think the head looks a bit big so my guess is it's a boy... and there is a 50% chance I'm right! [​IMG]

    I don't even try to sex them until 4 months. They change to much until then. Trying to guess before that time is just a guess like flipping a coin.

    they are too young. They need to be older
    a way to tell is if one has spurs
    otherwise sorry

    if you have any other questions send me a PM because I don't respond to
    threads

    hope I helped

    you can't tell by looking.. at least not at a photo, what you need to do is spend some time watching them. When you do, you will find your boys strut, yes even at a few days old the Toms will act like Toms. so spend some time watching them, and you will know your boys.
