    What breed do you have?

    Some breeds can be sexed at birth by color or wing feathers. Others have to be vent sexed by a professional.

    there is a way to sex them right when they come out of the egg. I've never done it. Its too late for that chick. You'll just have to wait and see if it starts to develop a comb.
