    Congratulations on the hatch. I notice you are probably not from the US. You use the date sequence our military and the rest of the world uses, Day-Month-Year, not the way we do it, Month-Day-Year. I worked internationally and that did cause some confusion.

    What do you know about the parents of those chicks? There are certain genes that allow you to tell sex at hatch, but the parents have to be set up a specific way genetically fo that to work. So if you know the breed and color of the father and the breed and color of the mother, then maybe we can help. Otherwise, I'm afraid they need to grow a while before I can help.

    I'm sorry. With those parents, the only way I know is to wait until they grow.
