    try puting them on the palm of your hand belly up. hold them there til they stop squirming. open your palm it the chick lays there or has a hard time turning itself upright it is a hen.

    hope that helps ( they all look like hens to me)

    I also was told to do this to sex chickens, it seems to work. [​IMG]

    Gently put their head between your pointer and middle finger, and close the tips of your fingers the flip your hand over palm up (puts the chick on its back) if in 5 seconds the chick quits squirming and relaxes it 's legs straight out, it's a hen. If the legs stay pulled up to the body, it's a roo.

    My friend used this technique at TSC and amazed them all. [​IMG]

    I love the toys, gonna try it! [​IMG]

    Quote:I tried that wiht RIR chicks that I had vent sexed and didnt find it to be any more accurate than anything else the hens scratched me trying to get away as much as the cockerels did. It's all old time hopla if you ask me. Vent sexing or waiting until they're starting to show their sex in their combs and what not is more positive than that.

    I read that if they drop one leg it's a pullet, two legs roo. Didn't work worth squat for me..

    My guess is..
    #1 Roo
    #2 Pullet
    #3 Roo
    #4 Pullet

    #1 RiR
    #2 could be a white rock
    #3 barred rock
    #4 is a polish or sultan but i guess polish you see how it looks like he is wearing a hat? and im not sure about flash dance i dont think i have seen one like him before.
