    hi there i got 3 chicks a month ago, i dnt know wat sex thaey are

    and itll be useful if you know the breed of the two brown ones...if u can

    sory about the photo quality:rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    #1 i think this one is a male, because he has some red parts on his comb and his tail is skinny and long

    [​IMG]

    #2 i think this one is a female because its comb is still very small, no colour and its tail is long but very rounded

    [​IMG]

    #3 i think this is an australorp but i'm confused about this one because its comb has grown a little, its orange but no sign of red and his/her tail is long and rounded and fluffy...


    is it to early to determine their sexxes??

    is there a chance that i got atleast 2 females???because i dnt want a male.

    they are 4 weeks old today

    are there any other signs i should look for?[​IMG]

    Welcome...

    If you can post clear, full-body shots from the side, we might be able to help you a little more. It is still early, but with better photos, someone that is familiar with the breeds might be able to tell you a little more. [​IMG]

    Hi...I am guessing number 1 and 2 are brown sex links or other hybrid layer. # 3 is a Black Australorp.

    As to sex...I am not even going to try to guess at this point. Maybe full body shots from the side would help and clearer pics?
