    I have some questions too [​IMG] First is there any way to tell the boy sumatra from the two girls at this age?
    Second, I might have the sussex and the welsummer mixed up. Am I right?? [​IMG]
    Third...oh! Got any ideas for names for the welsummer and plymouth rock? My chick is Marigold so I kinda want to keep them flowery but I'm braindead at the moment..

    Thanks for lookin!

    Thanks everyone! Sadly one sumatra died overnight and I'm not sure why...

    And I decided to go with whatever came to mind when I looked at the chicks so:
    Sabina, Rontu and Chenoa are the Sumatras (depending on if the male died..)
    Lavender the Welsummer
    and Cora the BR.
