    We bought 6 chicks from our local IFA and I'm concerned both our Jersey Giants and one of the Blue Andalusians could be males. We got them on Feb 16th and they were supposed to be sexed. Can anyone help us out? I may be being silly, its the first time we've had chicks. [​IMG]

    The chicks appear to be around 6 weeks old. The ones that have bright pink or red in their combs are likely to be roosters. A female shouldn't have any color in her comb until she is close to maturity around 4 months old.

    So all three are roosters? That would be horrible luck! I can (try) get better photos if that would help.
