    I just hatched out a couple of Bluebars from My Pet Chicken. I only got two out of 14 not good odds but the first time I had a successful hatch. My question is Can you tell if they are cockells or hens at this early age by feather. I'm hoping for at least one hen. I know some breeds you can tell right a way. Any information will be great thank you.

    I don't know if this a feather sexing breed, if it is it is only 80% accurate. Best to just wait until 4-5 weeks old to be sure.
