    We need to sex our chick and ID the breed. She is our Trader Joe's egg, Joey a.k.a. Jo-Jo.

    I am still very new to this group and chick rearing all together.

    TIA!

    Very likely a production Red.

    Too young for gender yet. Not much comb, but those are sure some sturdy looking legs..post again at about 6 weeks. Gender should be apparent then.

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Agreed, to early to tell breed or gender.... but those thick legs look boyish. [​IMG]

    Did you have any others hatch?

    ETA: agreed, likely production red.

    X 2 -- cute picture, but too early for a proper breed or gender ID at the moment. Look forward to seeing some more pictures in another few weeks.

    ya know I still think that it is so cool that you can go to some grocery stores, buy free range eggs and hatch them. Maybe I am just too easily entertained. BTW, I agree with the PR ID.
