    A local farmer told me to look up this video. He said it works!

    Basically, the rule is if the chicken tail forms a fan, then a girl. If not, a boy. [​IMG]

    Let me know what you think. I will try this in the morning with my roos and hens [​IMG]




    Don't attack if I'm wrong [​IMG] Haha

    I can generally sex my chicks by four weeks, without giving them a headache. Just look at comb development.
