    Is there a way to tell the sex by the top of their head? We couldn't figure out a way to sex ours so we just had to wait until she grew up and started calling our for a mate, then we knew we had named Emily correctly! LOL

    So I also hatch chicks and sell, I had a customer come to get Marans the other day, who used to have emu's and hatch about 900 a year so I was lucky enough that he vent sexed s few of them for me. He tried the 2 tiniest ones but well they were 2 tiny . The ones I have on here were clear as day you could see the differance he showed me how, don't know if I could do it. But here is What he said from vent sexing Baby 1 & 5 are boys, Babys 3 & 4 girls and Baby 2 well it ran to fast so that leaves me with 2 , 1 week olds and baby 2 that I am going to catch today and Dna test for sex.
