    Hello everyone! the last time i posted pictures of my chicks many of you answered that they were too young to figure them out... i waited a few weeks and i'm pretty sure my white chick is a male and my brown chick is a female. Can anyone confirm? [​IMG]

    some extra information:
    1. they both have silkie in them
    2. my white chick is much bigger then my brown chick but they are siblings
    3. The brown chick is SO CALM. Very very calm. But my white chick gets very excited really easily.
    4. when do chickens typically start crowing?

    here's a few pictures! :)

    do you have any pictures of their tail feathers? I find I can tell whether or not I have roosters by looking at the tail feathers instead of the combs.... I can't tell by these pictures :) good luck!

    To me, both look like roosters. Both have relatively large pink combs and are developing red on the wings (a male sign, usually).

    I'm also leaning toward male on both. How old are they?

    Then they are almost certainly males.
