Help sexing chicks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!

About a week ago we got these barred rocks and was wondering what I can look for to determine the sex of them?

If I'm seeing it correctly the closest chick to the camera has 2 even rows of feathers on its wing...that should indicate a pullet. I can't make out the other chicks wing feathers.  The little roos will have only one even row of feathers. This has been working for me so far but it's still not a true science with all breeds.

 

Here's a very helpful site on wing sexing. (might have to copy and paste I'm not sure I pasted it correctly in this post)
