    I am intrigued by feather sexing... can anyone explain how to do it and is it a fairly accurate way for an inexperienced person to guess at the sex of chicks? Are there certain breeds it works on better than others?

    Search the forum but this link is becoming active again and very informative. The first page really spells it out.
