    After reading through the forum it's probably too soon to tell but I figured I'd ask. I never noticed this part of the forum before. [​IMG] My babies are 2 1/2 weeks old. If anyone can help me with their sex, anyone have a guess?

    This is the larger chick, Lucky......

    I don't know who's a roo and who's a pullet, but I do know they are all really pretty! What breed(s) are they? Their legs are pretty large looking and they already have combs! My guess would be males, but I don't really know. [​IMG]

    Ok, I am not an expert by any means, so take it with a grain of salt, but my guess is that at least Lucky is a cockerel.

    Yeh, I was guessing at least on Lucky being a roo, though this is my first set of chicks. He actually made all the motions of a rooster crowing except no sound came out lol. He is only a day older than the other two but he is much bigger.

    I really don't know what breeds they could be because this started out as an innocent science fair project. We rented an incubator and bought the eggs from a local farm that does this sort of thing for school kids and then they take back any chicks when you return the incubator.

    The problem is I am in love and I am thinking of begging my husband to let me keep them [​IMG]

    I really don't know what kind of chickens this farm/store keeps and if they separate them by breed.
