In March we added two babies. My first "little" chicks. A breed I've been wanting to add for a long time. These are English Lavender Orpingtons from Chicken Feathers, a breeder in Shelbyville, TN. There is a lot of discussion about determining sex in young chicks. I can only speak from my experience, but I really didn't have much trouble seeing the difference after a little research, but I know it isn't always this easy.
