    [​IMG] I don't know what gender it is. I've seen videos and I believe it's a girl but I'm not positive. They said to look at their wings

    There's no way to tell from the wings unfortunately. Some chicks are bred specifically so that males and females feather out differently and with these, you can look at the wings at one or two days old and sex them, but it only works for those chicks specifically bred for that trait, and it also has to be done in the first few days.

    I can not tell what breed or gender they are. I got them from a feed store. And all they knew is that they were bantams.

    Well, it's usually only large fowl cross breeds made to be able to wing sex anyway. Usually by the time they have their feathers people here are really good about being able to tell what breed they are, so if you post again in a couple weeks I'm sure you'll get some answers on breed, at least :)
