    Hi, all. I just had a baby chick die and had only one left so I replaced it so the lonely chick could have a friend. I got two from Meyer hatchery that were not identified. Could anyone help sexing them? They were hatched around Monday.

    The dark one is an Australorp, the white with barred wings I'm unsure of. They 're too young to determine their sex.
