    If you google feather sexing that can work for some breeds up to the age of about 3 days.

    How old are the chicks you are talking about and what breed.

    Can't hurt to try then. No idea if it will work but I'm going to try with my australorp chicks when they hatch then use bird leg bands to mark my boy guesses. Shall see how many I get right I guess :)
