I bought 5 chicks in the beginning of March from a source that guarantees 90% of them be hens. They are about one month old now and are growing fast! This is my third year raising chicks, and every year I have gotten them from this same source. So far, I have never gotten a rooster, or male chick, and wouldn't be familiar with the signs of a chick being male. So my questions are: How early can you tell if a chick is male? And are there specific signs I should be looking for--physical or characteristic--that would indicate if a chick is male? As of now they all pretty much look and act the same as every other chick I have raised in the past, all of which are female. I'm just not sure how I would be able to tell and am curious. Thank you!
