    Just picked up these two - one is 5-day old Amerucauna. Dark one is a 12-day old Wyandotte. Wyandotte struggles when picked up and flaps a lot. We cannot have roosters - my kids are hoping these are both hens!! Can you help tell me if they will both be hens?

    Feather pick of little one:

    They are too young to sex. Post again in about a month or so. Also, your Ameraucana is actually an Easter Egger.

    I agree they're too young to tell. You should know by 6 weeks. Look for a red comb, longer thicker legs. Those are male signs.
