    what sex they truly are?

    is it diff. for each breed or a general rule of thumb by maybe xx weeks?

    I am dying to know what sex my chicks are...ugh..
    I know sexing is not completely accurate..and I want to know if I lost
    2 females this past week when 2 passed away..or if they were 2 roos..

    I'mjust impatient!!

    I think we are all impatient:-( Im only "good" at guessing sex of breeds I have raised about 85-90 right at about 4-5 weeks old. Other breeds [​IMG] not so much...
