    I had 3 large fowl vorwerk chicks hatch today, - 2 are very dark and one is much lighter - does anyone know if colouring is determinate of gender at this age, like legbars?
    Also, as i have 11 hatchlings in total - is it worth vaccinating them against anything?
    This is my first attempt at hatching! I am so happy so many hatched!
    Many thanks,

    I have no experience with Vorwerks, but I am pretty sure that they are not sex-linked.

    In other words, the sex of chicks cannot be determined by color.

    I have to agree with stevetone...I haven't heard anything about them being auto-sexing or sex-links... I;d say the most birds you have, the better off you are vaccinating... If you only have 11 chicks, its probably not a big deal to vaccinate :)
