hi all,
These chicks are now 7 weeks old. Could you please assist with gender guesses?

thanks!

Thanks Nelly. Yep, just two.
Which one do you think is which? To me, the one with more tail development looks like it has slightly lower comb in terms of how it sticks out from the head, but it seems broader, while the other has a slightly taller more skinny comb. (difference seems so minor it is like splitting hairs....) Last hatching I had two coronation chicks, presumably from different mothers, (more leg tinting on one as well), neither had tail development but have one each of boy and girl.

So, maybe I shouldn't try looking at their tails for quick gender determination, unless the parents are the same. Would that be a reasonable assumption? :-?

Well I was going on tail development, not on other characteristics. I thought the top one was the girl
