    Sexing banty chicks is even more difficult than standard chicks. Very few hatcheries even offer this service. I think vent sexing has to be done immediately after birth anyway so at three weeks I think you'll have to wait and hope! I have two, which I hope are girls, that are three weeks old. They are my sweetest chicks! Good luck!
