I've seen several posts on here regarding young chicks being sexed by their combs and their tailfeathers...hens develop their tailfeathers first, or so they say. Is this somewhat accurate? I got 11 bantam cochin chicks from Ideal on the 15th. And if all indications hold true, then I've got 6 hens and 5 roos. And the 5 "roos" have visibly larger combs already as well. The little girls started showing their tailfeathers after just 1 week, but the boys still only have little fuzzy butts!...no feathers coming in yet. This is how everything looks right now: Ordered 3 golden laced...all 3 have tailfeathers, no comb...GIRLS? Ordered 3 silver laced, all 3 have tailfeathers, no comb...GIRLS? Ordered 4 black, all 4 have visible combs, no tailfeathers...BOYS? And 1 "free peanut" which is a birchen bantam cochin, visible comb, no tailfeathers...BOY? If I'm right on sexing them, then I got pretty lucky. But I've got 3 little black boys who will have to find a home.
