Can anyone give their thoughts on gender at this age? Thanks!
Are they from a hatchery? If so, they all look to be red sex links and that would make them all females by coloring.
Hi, welcome to BYC!
What age IS that?
I was told there's a 10% chance of a roo. I believe they are 3 weeks thanks again!
Why do the feed stores say there's still a 10% chance you could get a roo? I'm new to this. It seems most people are saying with certainty that they are female bc of how they are bred. I'd love to know more. Thanks again for everyone's response.
If it was in a bin labelled "red stars", or "red sex links" then they have been bred to have all female chicks turn out a reddish orange, but male chicks will be yellow. Easy to tell when they're chicks.
But if they came from a bin labelled something like "layers", they could be Rhode island reds, or another breed that isn't a sex link, meaning the male and female would look alike and need to be " vent sexed" by a professional before shipping. The 10% rate if error is due to the human factor. Humans make mistakes when sexing them
Do you happen to know what breed they are?
They came from 3 different bin. The labels were Rhode Island Red, Golden Comet, and the smallest one in the photo came from New Hampshire bin.
