    I heard about the feather test for sex on day old chicks. Since the Delaware is a plain yellow chick I thought I'd try it. Does anyone know how to tell from feathers. We are hoping & think she is a hen:

    I just wanted to follow up on this post.
    The chick turned out to be a Rooster. He is beautiful but I will have to give him away. I just can't have too many roos here.
    I think I found a 4-H girl who wants him for her fair project. I hope this will be a good home as he is a nice boy.
