    Ok so I haven't had any trouble sexing my birds, I can't do two different brooders so how do I mark them to tell the difference as they grow bigger? Thanks!

    if you haven't had any trouble why would you down the road, or you can always paint toenails

    I'm not sure we won't have to sell some before I'm able to tell again. I seem to be horrible at the in between stages telling the difference.

    Could you use a toe punch on just one sex? Or Right foot punch for pullets, and left foot punch for cockerals.
