    This is the first chick. She/He is very delicate and sweet, and calm. She is an old english game. Is she/ he MALE OR FEMALE?

    She has a very large comb for a baby.


    Here is the second one, he/ she barely has a comb at all and is growing a lot slower than the one above. he is an old english game. He/she made a sound very similar to crowing this morning.

    Looks like #1 and #3 are cockerels, the other is a pullet. Honestly, it's really too young to tell. Post again in 2-3 weeks to know for sure.

    What breed are they? That would help with estimates. Some breeds of pullets get combs a lot earlier than others.

    They are all to young to tell, no wattles no comb colour.
