Can you feather sex day old astralorps?
Australorp chicks... male or female
I haven't tried feather sexing myself. Chances are that if you bought them from a feed store, they should both be pullets.
I have not had luck feather sexing Australorp chicks at a day old. I will say that at about 5 or 6 days old, you can make an educated guess about the sex based on how well-grouped the wing feathers are. A nice, smooth looking wing seems to be indicative of a pullet chick while a ragged, uneven wing seems to be a cockerel chick.
