    I'm having a very hard time telling if I have any hens in this bunch of 5 chicks I hatched on Nov 9th. They are 2 months and 1 week old. Any ideas are welcomed.

    Thank you!

    The video is only 3 minutes long but if you forward it to 1/2 way through it is them today. It's all I have.

    a good rule of thumb is: a hen's comb doesn't turn red until she is ready to lay.

    I'm sure the OP knows the sexes by now. The original post is almost 2 years old.
