    I'm new here, and at chickens. Friends of mine have had them for a few years and I wondered if someone could give me a guess at gender please? And thank you in advance! They're a mix of cream legbar, ameracauna and cuckoo maran was what I've been told. [​IMG]

    They look pretty young, like a little too young to tell. How old are they?

    Three weeks and a few days I believe. I'm not exactly sure when they hatched but they were just a few days old when I got them

    Too young. They are adorable - so please post new photos when they are about 8 weeks old. What you will be watching for in the interim is if any of the combs redden & enlarge - they could implicate them as cockerels to be.

    Ya feel free to update us in a week or 2 or 3 or however long you feel it takes to see enough difference in them. A lot of breeds it takes 6-8 weeks to accurately sex. And even then you still aren't 100%! At least not until they cock-a-doodle-doo or poop out an Egg! Lol
