    I have seen this subject come up many times before but never thought I would be asking it...who knew our girl would be hatching a BS baby???
    So, those of you with BS baby experience...
    What do you think about Little Yellow, boy or girl?

    I've not had them long enough to be able to sex that early, I just wait till I notice a difference as they grow (I'm hatching lager numbers though, so my odds of chicks of boh sexes is greater). Very cute though!

    For me it's too early to even guess. If the chick darkens as it grows it will most likely be a male if it doesn't darken then it will be a girl. Only males show green neck feathers.

    Well, I'm just going to keep posting pictures of Little Yellow until someone can tell me...
    Boy? or Girl?
    Perhaps this may be a useful resource for future wonderers about bs babies.
    LY's about to turn one month old! Pictured here with his/her sibling.

    I'm going to guess girl, based on nothing other than size. [​IMG]
