    I am planing oh hatching the folowing breeds, can they all be feather sexed?
    RIR's, BCM's, Gold Buff Orpington, and Blue Laced Red Wyandotte

    I'm not aware than any of them can be. Some people have certain tricks for certain breeds though.

    Most birds that can be reliably feather sexed are production hybrids that are bred specifically because they can be feather sexed.

    I know for a fact that you can feather sex BLRWs and RIRs, have not had BCMs or GBOs so do not know if our learned methods would work for them or not.
