    Okay, so I wasn't expecting to be able to tell gender, and maybe I'm reading too much into this, but my little day old classroom chicks seem to have a few that are really screaming ROO to me... The way they stand, constantly... acting in charge... I'm really wondering...


    Also.. These are all Polish chicks, but can anyone tell me more specifics on what kind of Polish they might be?

    Here they are....

    Unless you can vent sex you're going to have to wait a while. Not sure where the 5th toe came from on the next to last one.

    Yeah I don't know how to vent sex... and I figured we'd have to wait. It just seemed crazy that the blonde one was so roo like this early. Bossy.. standing tall... looks out for the others..
