    First time trying pictures. First day for my girls in their big new house.
    They are 5-1/2 weeks.
    I have 3 black sex-links.
    2, I think production reds? girls?
    And my favorite, sweetest and funniest, Pierogi. Please tell me she's a she ... she is the biggest and stands the tallest though.
    The last pic they were 1 week.

    Thanks!

    But, but, doesn't mine look just like your girl ???
    No! I so don't want her to be a roo.
    I am out in the country so if it is I can keep (sob)him but really wanted all girls.

    Hmm, how old does a roo have to be to fertilize?
    I imagine by the time the others are laying?
    If you collect fertilized eggs right away they are fine to eat right?

    I am brand new with chickens.
    Boy I have a lot to learn ...

    When his comb and wattles are bright red (varies by breed), fertile eggs are safe/fine to eat.​

    Quote:Bwhaaa! Too funny! She, I refuse to say he yet, is really quite the character. In fact, I had no idea chicks could have such personality.
    I am thrilled with my new obsession.

    At 5-1/2 weeks I see no comb at all. Maybe I just don't know what I am looking at?
    Pierogi's tail is always straight up, although not in these pics, and she has no 'saddle feathers'?
    So, she's a girl right [​IMG]

    How darling is that chick! [​IMG] I would love to be able to have a roo like that, if he is a roo. I can't tell.
