    I emailed the hatchery but haven't gotten a response yet. I got 25 "mixed heavy" breeds this morning and it looks like almost all of them are pullets if that holds true [​IMG] I might need a bigger coop now [​IMG]

    Nope none of them are feather sexable exept maybe some RIR and Leghorns that are bred for production.

    you could always vent sex them. How fun, right. I have tried this, but no reading in the world can prepare you for that.
