My 2 chicks are only 2 weeks old, but I'm but I'm experiencing the what-if-one's-a-rooster anxiety. Will I know by 8 weeks? Or will I have to wait longer, do you think? The reason for the 8 week deadline is that my daughter in Michigan (I'm in New Hampshire) assured me she would take him/them, if it comes to that. I'm planning a trip out there at the end of June (chicks will be 8 weeks at that point) and can take them to her. So if I know I'll know by them, I'll be put at ease that it will all work out. One is a Partridge Chantecler and one is an Ameraucana.
