    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:

    Most chickens can be identified a gender when they are at least 4 weeks old, but the one that flaps may be a rooster, but with time you will be able to tell! Also, if one is a rooster you should donate it.
