This is going to be an odd thread and I'm looking for a discussion of your various experiences with baby chicks! My little chicks have turned two weeks old this week. I know that most sex characteristics come out around 5-6 weeks, so I've got a few more weeks to make sure. But this is a question about any personality development you noticed early in rooster chicks vs hens! Ive got an adopted bantam d'uccle and my standard hatchling that are two weeks old. The bantam is absolutely stuck on mom. They are right under her feet and are always attentive for when she calls them for food or when she walks around. However, her hatchling is fairly independent for two weeks old! They also run over when she calls them for food, but they're perfectly content to sit alone, dust bathe, and to slightly walk away from momma or to let her walk away while they sunbathe in the grass. This has me curious if they're showing early signs of rooster independence, or if this is an independent hen! What do yall think? Have you noticed any personality development from rooster chicks that seems to be common, like independence or an attitude?
