The Basque Hens are now a full five weeks old! They are adorable and energetic. At this point, it is possible to be fairly certain as to sex based on secondary sex characteristics. I mostly rely upon the early reddening of the boys’ combs and their assertive stance. Meeker postures with smaller, thinner, yellower combs at this age are generally females.
I was taking pictures in the evening, so some chicks were mostly inside the coop. I’m not sure I caught everyone, but here they are!
