    Can you really do this? I've heard a few people can do it with any breed? I have Orps and Ameraucanas. . . should I even bother trying?

    Thanks!

    I don't remember how to do it now... but years ago it usually worked for my two barred Rock X. I got them at two days old. Looked at their wings and said, pullets. I was right but it is never a sure fire way to tell.
