I have three bantam chicks I hatched on 18th August so nearly 3 weeks old. Have been trying to sex them. Can anyone help. They are pekin bantams. The all yellow one should be a blue pekin, the other 2 I am not sure of the breed. Can anyone advise of the breeds and sex?

It is a bit early to tell yet. 4-6 weeks is generally when bantams start to show a difference. The boys will sprout bright pink wattles whereas the girls will have none. You'll see a difference in the combs as well - bigger and pinker for the boys, pale and small for the girls.

I agree that it is a bit too early and that you should update in a couple weeks. But I would guess that the last one is a boy because of the pink wattles. But again not too sure right now! ;)
