    Can anyone help with sexing this peachick? This peachick is a little over 2 months old.

    Someone told me that they can tell by the barring on the wing feathers. [​IMG] I'm kind of hoping for a pretty male.

    I'd have to say hen, too.
    I really don't see any barring on the shoulders.

    can I ask a stupid question, How well do the guineas tolerate the pea chicks? my guineas want to eat any chicken smaller than they are.
    I am kinda going crazy as to where to place my pea chicks when they get old enough, on another post I am concidering keeping them inside all winter
    I would love to know how they get along and if anyone else keeps the 2 together.
