These are my babies who will be four weeks old on Monday. I think I have two boys and a girl - what do you think? They are silver pencil laced wyandotte bantams.
Sage



Onion



and Parsely



Bless them they are all a bit dopey looking as I got them out of bed to have their photo's taken as it is the only time I can catch them. There mums didn't seem to worried about it. Please tell me what you experts think they are

Thank you, they are sweet although they are just getting to that awkward gawky teenage stage. Some other people suggested that they are all girls - that would be great!!!! What do you think???

Hmm... wing feather and tail feather all consistent in size...

so, either all girls or all boys, though at three and a half weeks I would also expect them to have little backpacks, so I'm leaning towards all boys... sorry!

id say the first two boys (wattles developing & can be seen clearly) last one a girl as lack of wattle development.

I dont know if its relevant but 1st two have stripes on the eye, the last one hasnt.

Gorgeous pics Chuckmum and great names  :).

I'm not too sure about Onion (sorry :(), but I think Sage is possibly a boy because of his/her feet look quite large and his/her comb and wattles are clearly visible. Parsely's comb and wattles aren't very clearly seen and his/her feet aren't too big, so I think it may be a girl.

I'm definately not 100% certain what I've said is right, but that's what I'm thinking  ;).

After seeing the front view photos I'd say Sage and Onion are boys and Parsely a girl  :) :) :). Still not 100% sure though  :nowink:.

Hi, I'd go with 2 bys and a girl - how are they behaving? do Sage and onion bicker more with each other than Parsley - The fight for dominance starts very early!

I agree with ww, 1st one shows distinctive wattles (boy) and last one no wattles at all (girlie) but I couldnt really see from piccies to say for the other 2

Hello again, I think I have two girls and a boy. Onion still is the only one with obvious wattles (now aged 6wks).  He engages in a fair amount of sparing with Parsley, who has just joined them now both mums have returned to the main coop.  He is also bigger and has a more prominent tail. So I am please two have two hen's, but I will need to rehome Onion (if anyone has any suggestions of a good place to start with him I would welcome the suggestions - he will make a good looking cockerel I'm sure)!
