Someone said something about holding the chicks by their feet, and if the fly up it means I'm not sure. Has anyone heard of this? If you have; can you explain it to me. I'm confused... Right now I believe strongly I have at least one rooster, but I'd like to know for sure how many hens and roosters I got.

I have not heard that but i have heard that you can hold there wings out and possibly tell wether one is male or female.

My chicka babies are 4wk old Rhode Island Reds.
The only way is to keep a look for larger combs turning redder sooner (pullets don't get red combs till they are ready to lay). If you post pictures in two weeks members can give a guess on their gender. Also as they get older you can look for male and female tail feathering.
