    A few weeks ago we purchased 6 chicks from a feed store, and now as they are getting older I am concerned about the gender of the chicks. Hoping for all hens! Here's some pictures if anyone can help me determine the gender that would be great (not sure if they are too young or not, they are around 4 weeks old)

    They are still too young to be accurately sexed, post again in a few more month. :) None of them have any features that would scream rooster about them yet.

    [​IMG] they are adorable chicks. Cross beaks usually get worse as the chick matures. They usually eat better if the food is piled up high, so they manage to grab some easier.
