    So I brought 3 day old “sexed chicks” one is definitely female. Unfortunately I think the other 2 are males, I’ve been calling them females hoping and praying I was wrong as the whole families grown very attached to them. But I just wanted to put it on here to make 100% before I have to get rid of them. I got told both were legbar x.

    How old are they? The buff barred one is a cockerel. Not sure about the other one though.

    So, sold as crosses, sounds like they came from a private seller...did they say how they sexed them? Depending on the direction of the cross, they would be sex links but not everyone realizes that or how to sex them......some private sellers mistakenly use wing feather sexing without understanding it ONLY applies to specifically bred birds.
