    Aww! They're soooo cute and adorable when they are babies, but they sure will become beautiful when adults

    You can't know the gender of a chick until it is 5 to 6 weeks old and begins to crow or lay

    Spongy just spongy lol. Well I can usually tell by their combs and their wattles as they get bigger. Or their feathering if its a rooster or a pullet. So far I've been able to sex most of my chicks as they grew before they crowed or laid their eggs.

    yep Spongy is a girl for sure. I've had a few people say that she is a she. Not gonna get in a argument about how I can tell if its a pullet or if its a cockerel. Just posted some pictures that's all like everyone else does. Pretty bad ya can't post anything without someone getting upset over something so silly... Or pushing their opinion..
