    Hello! I decided to start another thread on helping all you back yard chicken farmers determine the sex of your chicken.
    I know it can sometimes be super tricky to identify gender in chicks, so that's why we made this thread! No need to start your own thread, just hop on here and share a picture of your chick, making sure it's at least 4 weeks old before asking gender. Me and @Jetblack2004 are almost 100% on genders for chicks 4 weeks+.
    So feel free to ask lots of questions regarding gender. We do NOT identify breeds, only gender. However, if anyone out there is good at identifying breeds, please let us know, we would love to have your help!

    Thanks!

    I'm very sorry for little homeless raggedy's looks. I threw rocks at a hawk to save his life today. It can't see very good both eyes are black and it's missing a fairly large chunk of skin/feathers on back of it's neck

    That's a pullet. I am so sorry about the hawk attack, and good job saving her life!

    The middle one is a pullet, and the other 2 are roosters. :)
