    Guys,
    I have two NH's that hatched on Thanksgiving day so they are about 40 day old. Any idea, two boys, two girls??? I'm guessing two boys!

    Campesina -

    With the original chick pictures you can tell they're roos because of the very notable growth of comb and wattles at a very young age (approximately 7 weeks). Females will still have yellow or light pink comb and wattles and will typically not be that large at that age.

    The other chicks are either too young to tell, or the pictures are too washed out by the flash.
