    I bought 6 chicks today and am positive one is a male, and three are females. Two others are so difficult! Please verify!

    1. Male?

    I think you're trying to use the methods to sex barred rock chicks by color? That can be done, although it might not be 100% accurate, of course. It's hard to make them out with the red light though.

    Yes, I know how to do it. What I was saying is the red light is washing everything out and making it harder to see.
