    Hi everyone.
    I have had 10 Chicks from a week old and have been constantly checking on here for advice since bringing them home so thought it was about time that I signed up!
    I have 3 Polish fizzles, 3 frizzle pekin bantams and 4 silkies.
    They are all 6 weeks old today.
    I wondered if I could have a bit of help with sexing them?
    Thank you all for your help so far and any help I get in response.
    Becca

    There's no photos, welcome to BYC, you might not have posted enough to post photos yet. Sounds like an adorable flock.

    I can help you with the pekins. If you can see a bright pink comb and wattles, it's a boy. At that age girls will still have next to no comb, it will still be flesh coloured and they won't have wattles. Frizzles are so cute!

    I'll be in the barn!
    The two whites look cockerl-ish. Can't really see the darker one.

    My other Polish is poorly at the moment so will take a picture of that one when it's feeling a bit better.
