Hi it's been a long time since I last posted, mainly because my girls have been problem-free for the last couple of years (yay!). This year I broke out my incubator again, these chicks are just 3 weeks old. Any guesses on sex? I know I'm a bit early, but I'm giving some of them to a friends kids for Christmas presents when they visit tomorrow (they lots most of their flock to a fox a few months ago) and real don't want to give them boys. The ones I'm interested in getting your opinion on are French Wheatan Marans (not great quality, was disappointed in the colour of the eggs when delivered) and Silver Pencil Wynodottes. The plain grey ones hatched from some blue eggs, but I hate to call them Araucanas as I'm in Australia and I don't think what we call an Araucans is the same as in the USA. Thank You! ps some of the SPWS look a bit brown. it's just the light, they are actually black and white.
