    So, my silkie hen hartched out these little beauties...and I only think one of them was even hers!

    Of course, we love them all. However....I am fearing we have some boys in the mix and we don't have the space to keep a bunch of boys [​IMG] So, before they all get named, can someone help me identify them? They are about 6-7 weeks old, and are cochin/RIR/silkie mutts [​IMG]

    I know...they are SO cute!!! Their antics just crack me up, lol.

    So....noone can tell? Hmmm, is there somewhere I can go or a site where I could find out if they are M/F? I don't want my kids to get too attatched before we know...if that is possible...Thank you!

    I think 2 and 6 are girls. The others look like boys. [​IMG]

    Perhaps you would have better luck posting in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" forum.

    Quote:Looks the same to me. With six chicks, here are the odds. I think you hit the 23% jackpot.

    6 male 0 female - 1 in 64 or 1.6%
    5 male 1 female - 6 in 64 or 9.4%
    4 male 2 female - 15 in 64 or 23.4%
    3 male 3 female - 20 in 64 or 31.3%
    2 male 4 female - 15 in 64 or 23.4%
    1 male 5 female - 6 in 64 or 9.4%
    0 male 6 female - 1 in 64 or 1.6%
