    What's the easiest way to mark roosters on baby chickens . I used ouchless rubber bands but they seem to be picking at them . Can anyone tell me what this check is ? [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, unless you are a professional, feather-sexing is not very accurate. I would wait until they reach about 2 months, which is when they are matured enough to tell the gender. Hope this helps!
