    Hi I was just wondering what sex these Phoenix Chicks are, if you can't see them properly 2 (same age) have more developed legs and lighter feathers where as the 3rd is shorter and smaller legs. I hope you can help me out. Thanks

    They are too young yet for anything but guesses.

    If it starts turning pink in the next few weeks it's probably a rooster.

    As other people have already stated, its far to young to know correctly what genders they are. However, with my birds, when they hit the age yours are at I start to see large red combs if they are boys. I do not see that on yours.

    Are thy mixed breed? To me, they don't exactly look purebred. Do you know who the father was/is? Right now my guess is that they *could* be all pullets, as I do not see an large combs. My other guess would be, that the larger one *could* be a young cockerel due to the size difference. But right now, no one can tell for sure-by just looking at there appearance...

    Keep us updated.
