    Read a lot on this subject but being new to the game was wondering if anybody who like to confirm the sex of my two chicks. Both are 7 weeks old but the LH one is older by 2 days. I think LH front chick is rooster and RH back chick pullet. Unfortunately the rooster will have to find a new home as council do not allow in my area [​IMG]
    Thx

    Front bird is definitely a cockerel - I am honestly leaning heavily that way on the back bird as well, but would like to see what he/she looks like in another two weeks.
