I know this is a long shot but is there anyone in the Akron/Cleveland area that knows how to sex chicks? I am either looking to have someone do this for me or to teach me (which is what I prefer). Thanks!
What are you hatching? The chicks in your avatar appear to be wild type, those chicks can usually be sexed at birth by their markings.
BTW vent sexing is an extremely specialized skill, the professionals undergoe months of training, even so 1 or 2% of babies die from the procedure. Many mid-sized hatcheries can't afford to hire vent sexers so they sell unsexed chicks; if it were easy to learn you can be sure they would have.
