    You could feather sex, if there the right breeds to do so.

    Congrats Sara! [​IMG]

    You can only feather sex if they are bred for feather sexing, which mine aren't. It is misleading to tell people this and they risk giving up pullets based on this method which is only generally used by hatcheries, not backyard breeders.
