    Most places do not sex bantams because they are not feather sexable, so they must be vent sexed and supposedly they are too small and fragile for it to be done very easily. The only place I have even found that will sell sexed bantam chicks online is mypetchicken and even then the selection of breeds available is fairly limited. The best solution might be to buy extra chicks and give away or sell the male chicks when they start getting roostery.

    No, I don't know of anywhere that sexes bantam chicks. You could always check your local craigslist and see if anyone is selling any adults. Also, you could post a "wanted to buy" ad in craigslist for anyone who is looking to get rid of adults.
