    I have 4 chicks that are 19 days old. 2 GLW, 1 BLRW and 1 light susex. I hatched them myself and quickly found out that vent sexing is A LOT harder than they make it look in video. So I decided to pick my fav 4 chicks from the hatch and watch them grow. They all feathered out exactly the same times, sprouting little tails after just a few days. Today they are enjoying a warm day out on the lawn and are loving dust bathing in the sun. I thought I'd take a few photos while I had them outside. Any guesses as to sex would be greatly appreciated.

    It's a little early for me to tell. When they get their body feathers, it's easier when you can see saddle feathers on the males.

    i think 1,2,and 4 are girlies, is still to young to tell though..repost in a week or so.
    However i am unsure about number 3...those wattles do look quite big..but they are colourless so i am unsure..

    Good luck!!

    As far as the Wyandottes go, it's a little eary to tell-but if you have any waddles now-they are likely boys(numbers 3 and 4 would be on my boy list).
