    Well the mystery goes on ... so I going to post an updated pic of my 2 little BR chicks

    are we boys or girls ??

    here is chick number one - a little more friendly and not so flighty about being held - but is a brave little one always runs up to my hand and bellie bumps me !!



    here is chick number two - a little more shy and abit flighty not as brave as his/her friend



    it is hard to tell but chick number 2 is lighter in color and is a bit smaller than number one

    How old are they again.? I would say chick #2 is pullet, not sure about #1, kinda throwing me off a little. The barring say pullet, but comb and leg's say roo.....

    What is the age? I say #1 is a boy and #2 is a girl so far.

    Could be wrong, but I agree #1 cockerel, #2 pullet (maybe, going on the longer tail)

    these kids are I think 3-4 weeks but not much older than - ( forgot the exact date I brought them home from TSC [​IMG] )
    if I have a pair that would be great, [​IMG] if I have 2 pullets even better [​IMG] , two roos well [​IMG]

    I thought for sure number 2 would be a roo it is lighter in coloring than number 1 - but like I said I am totally lost with these two -- [​IMG]


    oh cyn - I was hoping you would be online to see these two -- why are they giving me such a hard time trying to find out who is who - rotten little buggers LOL - they are feathering nice but such mixed signals from them !!

    One reason they are giving you a hard time, Julie, is that, honestly, they just don't have very good barring at this point. Usually, baby feathers' barring is a little more uneven than the adolescent feathers, but theirs is sort of wildly uneven, making it hard to tell the sex by that. That does throw the diagnosis off some.

    I really don't know but my 3wk old BR is pictured in the "Hermione or Harry" thread. I'm trying to figure out what it is also.

    *Edited to add: just noticed you posted on my thread so you've already seen those pics...
