I might be able to help a bit. I've had chickens for awhile now. I've studied MANY chicken health books and learned a bit over time.ive had some great experiences and some very tragic ones too. I might be able to offer something to help others if you don't mind?

Hey! So I hatched my first lot of chicks this week, they are now 2 days old. I was wondering if it is possible to sex them at this age? And if so, how do I go about it without stressing them out too much? Thank you! ^_^

What breed are they? Some breeds can be autosexed (like sex links), but for most you have to wait till they are 4-6 weeks or older.

They're actually hybrids, but the cockerel is a Scots Grey. I have 2 Welsummers, 2 Black Sussex, and 1 Cuckoo Maran. I haven't quite managed to identify which ones lay which eggs, so they could be a mixture from each of my hens or just one! smile.png
