    I just got 4 new chicks, and do not know which are roosters and hens. I have 2 black sumatras and 2 silver laced wyandottes. What is the easiest way to sex them??[​IMG]

    Just wait till there about 5 weeks then you'll know. Then butcher the extra rooster

    You will have to wait until they are around 4-8 weeks, it can vary. And post pictures
