I have several small glass critter ornaments - some are chickens. :) My original plan was to keep a few of these and sell the rest to help pay for the eggs and shipping. Since there were only a few hatched, I may have trouble deciding to sell any. Personalities will help with the decision, and also if they are not all roosters. :hands:

They're 2 weeks old today. I haven't seen any sign of boys or girls. Maybe they are all the same sex. After I took the first picture with a flash they stayed all bunched up.

The chicks are 3 weeks old now. They can jump about 8 inches. I don't have a cover on them yet. The biggest black one has been behaving like a roo, and the white one has a pinkish comb already, so I think it may be a roo. The white one has a few black spots now. I like the brown ones.

Yes I find if the comb is red already they are usually boys.

I read that Seramas often go broody and hatch chicks. Wouldn't that be cute!

They are only 3 1/2 weeks old and already it looks like 6 boys and 2 girls. :( The suspected boys have bigger, pinker combs and longer tails. Some have been sitting on top of the feeder. I think the lighter colored brown one and the black and white one with the most yellow on its face are girls. Two black ones and the white one are boys for sure.
