    Hi, my names Jenn and I'm new here. I attempted to hatch 3 fertilized eggs, and wound up with 1. Was wondering if anyone had any clue by the look of "her" wether she is actually a she, or might be a roo.[​IMG]

    AWWWW what a cute little chick. How old is it? What breed is it? In the 4th pic down from the bottom, I can see this little dude has some long legs. Would lead me to guess that it's a male, but can't say for sure.

    Hi Jenn, [​IMG]

    I can't really tell but it's sure a cutie. Will you be able to keep a rooster? Maybe get him/her some playmates?

    He/she does have thick, long legs, and a rather pointy head, so I was thinking that too. I won't be able to keep a rooster, so he'd have to go up to my Mother's farm area. Nemo is a silly bantham mix

    Thanks for the replies....I guess it makes it extra hard to sex when they're silkie mix [​IMG] Nemo's such a cutie, and really has been spoiled as our only little survivor- she/he hasn't even been outside yet! I've got all my fingers and toes crossed for a pullet, but I've got crap luck, and each day that goes by it looks more cockerel [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC, Jenn. Glad you decided to join our flock. Nemo is too young to sex accurately at this point. I would suggest posting a profile pic of Nemo on our What Breed or Gender is This? section in a couple of months and letting our experts there take a look at Nemo for you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
