    Hi, we are raising our first 3 chicks and need some help guessing at gender. I have a 6wk light brahma, 6wk partridge Silkie and a 4 week blue Orphington. Thanks for any help!!

    I would lean towards the Light Brahma being a cockerel, based on comb width and size. The Orpington also has rather large comb and wattles for its age, so could be a cockerel too. The Silkie is too young to tell on.

    Thanks so much. It would figure that I bought that many cockerels, possibly. Lol

    Oh I hope you are right. Guess I'll wait a bit longer and see how they look.
