    These girls (I always call them girls in the hope that they are) are 4 weeks old. The first pictures are showing a chick of unspecified breeding, her mum is an isa brown and her dad is a white americana or black americana. The second is an americana from a lavender mum with what is probably a white americana dad, but could be the black one. Do you think they are girls or boys????!

    would have to wait a few more weeks and than get a comb sot of them. The last chicks dad is the white rooster.

    When they have their adult feathers, post their photos on the EE sexing thread and you'll get a pretty quick answer. In the meantime, watch that top one for red feathers coming in on the shoulders, or a "patchy" feather pattern developing. Those are indicators that it's a boy.
