    Hi again guys,

    I just wanted to know about my chicks gender ... They are 7 .... 2 Cochins, 3 Orpingtons, 2 Dominiques or Barred Plymouth Rocks (I can't figure out the breed) ... How can I recognize their genders?

    They are 3 - 4 weeks older....


    Thnx

    Post pictures.

    Boys generally have a larger comb that turns red much earlier than females. Larger waddles too.

    I can't wait to see pictures. Barred (Plymouth) Rocks can generally be sexed at birth. Pullets (girls) will have a small dot on their head with dark fronts to legs while the cockerels will have bigger 'dots' and not dark legs.
