Feather sexing

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Robert McGaughey, Mar 13, 2012.

  1. How hard is it to feather sex RIR's, I'm hatching a mixture of RIR's and BSL's. Thought I'd go by the BSL's feathering, what's everyone think, this'll be my first try so any help would be nice.

    When you say that it isn't accurate, could you explain a bit more? I'm going to be looking at Black Australorps and Giant Blue Cochins later this week. Does the feather sexing work for them?

    Thanks!
