    Sorry but all three frizzles are boys. Here's a photo of my beautiful Peep (she's one of only 4 girls out of a bunch of 14 chicks!) so you can see how different the girls look at that age. All my frizzles were boys. Thankfully the breeder takes back boys to rehome but it was still tough giving them back, especially on our daughter as they are such sweet little things.

    Oh no [​IMG]
    Where I got my Chicks from said that the boys all get culled as they can't do anything with them. So I was really hoping that they would all be girls!

    A better quality photo of my lighter Polish (not sure on colour name)
    Please Lord don't let her be a he! It's my favourite out of all of them!

    I'll be in the barn!
    Maybe try to rehome them yourself.

    That's rough! Maybe you can find them a home? I have kept one of the boys we hatched to rehome as he ended up being a cross - a duckwing leghorn daddy and a partridge pekin mum. The breeder was very embarrassed to have given me a cross. He's beautiful and I didn't want to give him back as, being a cross I was worried he might be culled. Your polish frizzles are adorable! And your silkie babies too - I have no experience with either breed so can't help with those. Fingers crossed for more girls.

    Oh I would definitely not let them go to be culled!
    I have a friend who takes birds to a fancy bird sale, so will see if mine are something that he thinks would be offered a new home.

    I would love to keep them all but my neighbours work nights so I have got no chance!
    I will see if I can sort something with my friend who goes to the sales, if not then I will rehome them on pet sites if possible. Is it fairly easy to rehome Cockerells? Do people want them?
    Thank you! My Polish are my babies! So funny and full of themselves
