    Hi everyone1 I just was wondering when can I post some pics to try ti figure out the sex of my hatched babies. I have six 2-week old Ameraucanas, five 2-week old Copper Marans and five 2 day old silkies. and I can only keep 7 total... right now they are small enough so that I have enough space for a while, but not for long at the rate they are growing.

    At two weeks it would be very difficult to tell gender, I think.

    If it were me I'd post pics at 4 weeks, then 6 weeks, etc. until you know for sure. The silkies will be a guess even then, as one never really knows until they lay or crow.

    But we can still have fun guessing!! [​IMG]

    This is just my opinion, of course. You COULD post pics now and we can enjoy the chick pics. [​IMG]
