    I have acquired these two peachicks, approx 4 wks old? Can anyone tell me their probable sex? And how much longer under a warming light before I can put them in an outdoor pen? I live in the midwest, with avg temp in the 60's at night recently. Thanks for any help you can give me! :) (I hope I uploaded these pics correctly.)

    Teresagy,
    [​IMG] Male peachick have oranger primary flight feathers and barred back, while female peachick have browner primary flight feathers and plain brown back.

    Question: when your peachicks hatched ??? (date of birth)

    Can you please send me the photoes of your peachicks and opened wings of peachicks ???

    You're welcome.

    Cheers
