    I have two sultan chicks at about 8 weeks old. I got them from Meyer and ordered for only female chicks. I have polish hens and have already gone through the growing up of them as chicks, but sultans are a little bit different and harder for me to tell the sex. I’ve never actually raised them to adulthood before.
    I’m probably being a little paranoid but I’m wondering if anyone could help me sex them?

    Chick 1 (Apple):

    To young to say for sure. Sultans are tough being bearded and crested. I wouldn't for sure what they are as of now.

    More pictures of the kids starting 10 weeks now (Keeping track of weeks so I can see how they grow and hopefully stay as hens). These two and the barred rock we got are so relaxed. The Swedish on the other hand....
