    Is there any way to tell the gender of runners when they're a couple days old?! Or an educated guess?!

    Just say to yourself I want all boys, pick your babies and take them home. They might all turn out to be girls

    Let them relax in their brooder and the runners will stand taller. You are going to take pot luck on genders. No way to tell, unless you know how to vent sex, and if you knew that, you wouldn't have been asking.

    The males are nice. They are much quieter. It's not like roosters who are noisy.
