    Hello,

    New to the forum and the world of chicks!

    My husband and I got 4 chicks from Atwoods 3 weeks ago - not sure what they are. Two of them have 5 toes so I we think that makes them silkes. How can you tell the guy/gal thing? I've read a couple of posts and am still clueless if our little ones are roosters or hens.

    My husband is currently planning our coop and run - can't wait to get started :)

    Would appreciate any help.

    Thanks!

    C and J

    Welcome! I'm still a newbie, but thought I'd say "hi" to someone so close! [​IMG] We're a Wichita flock. We got our girls from Atwoods too.
