    Hi, I'm new at this. My husband and I have 6 bantam chicks that we got from Tractor Supply Company, only we don't know if the are hens or roosters, and we don't know what breed they are. All I know is we have 1 with feathered feet. We have 2 cats as well, and they are very curious about the little chicks.

    Should anyone have any ideas on how I can determine their sex please let me know.
