    Not until they're old enough for secondary characteristics to show, no.

    Sebrights can be more difficult to sex than other breeds. Cockerels are hen feathered so they do not develop saddle feathers, or pointy hackle feathers. You will have to judge by comb color and crowing of course.

    Comb color?

    I heard that you can tell by the color of the circle around there eye. True?
