Feather Sexing Olive Eggers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need help feather sexing my four new chicks. I bought them straight run and I'm afraid I have all Roos! At least three look like Roos to me but I really want at least two pullets! I've never feather-sexed before and could really use some help!

Chick 1:


Chick 2:


Chick 3:


Chick 4:

You cannot feather sex them unless the breeder purposefully bred for that. Unfortunately the only way to tell their gender is to wait.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
