    I need help feather sexing my four new chicks. I bought them straight run and I'm afraid I have all Roos! At least three look like Roos to me but I really want at least two pullets! I've never feather-sexed before and could really use some help!

    You cannot feather sex them unless the breeder purposefully bred for that. Unfortunately the only way to tell their gender is to wait.
