    Both are my first hatchlings ... barnyard mixed flock.
    Trying to figure out their gender any ideas ?

    #2 looks like a boy to me, blotchy feather pattern, large comb. Not sure about #1 [​IMG]

    Quote:They were both hatched on 3/27/11
    Chick #1 came from a green egg
    Chick #2 from a brown egg

    My thoughts are they are both roosters.

    #2 is a rooster, not sure about #1. I love the color of #1.

    I'd say #1 is a OEG mixed roo & #2 is a Rhode Island Red roo. Both 8-9 weeks old. Healthy & strong birds you have there![​IMG]
