    Which ever one did it, for crowing for the first time did a great job! [​IMG] I'm excited about it now....I'm sure I won't be when they all start up [​IMG] LOL! Theres only one I know for sure is a male, and only one i know for sure is a hen, theres 5 others I have no clue who they are and I didn't see who crowed! LOL!

    I have a new perception on what it sounds like though!!! It sounds like someone stepping on something wet, like a bag with some water and air in it that "splurt" noise ha ha!!!!

    By the way, they are 3 weeks and 4 days old! [​IMG] Those early bloomers! [​IMG] Maybe I'll have eggs by christmas! LOL!

    edited because I typed 3 weeks and 1 day old instead of what they truely are 3 weeks and 4 days old haha *brain fart*

    Quote:haha yes I'd say that is bad! Thanks for hoping I have mostly girls, I hope so too! The only one in there I WANT to be a male is my A & M chick....my A & M male I bought from the breeder kicked the bucket soon after I got him, he was really skinny, but he was the only A & M male of hers I could find lol! ANYWHOOO, I really want this A & M to be a male....but ofcourse, im sure just because i WANT it to be a male it'll turn out to be a hen ha ha. NO biggie really though, i'd just have to breed for an A & M male, or go back to the breeder, OR order some A & M eggs if it turns out to be a hen...HOWEVER, it looks like a male lol, not as big breasted and henny looking.

    All the others can be hens...lol. The brown male, dunno where he's going...I don't want him. lol.

    I'm sure i'll be announcing my chick sex stats soon. [​IMG]
