    I have 14 chicks that I need help identifying. They were 4 weeks old on Friday. We are only keeping 4, so I need to figure gender out so we can give the other 10 away. Here are the first 5.

    #5 I think this is the only girl of the bunch that I have here. But I'm just a newbie so I wanted to be sure.

    Not sure about the others, but 2 has a biiiiig comb! The coloring seems darkish to me, so not sure. Does she/he have a dark wash down the front of the legs? Neither of my BR had that big a comb at 4 weeks. Sorry I am not much help [​IMG] but definately curious about #2

    Nope, #2 doesn't have a dark wash. It sure has a huge comb though! Here's another pic if that helps.

    YAY! That's what I thought all but #5 were roosters. Off they go to Craigslist. If anyone is in San Diego and wants free roosters let me know :)
