Edited to add.
Do you know what breed it is?
Large or small comb, big or small feet & legs?
I don't really think you can if your not a pro....lol
im hoping it's mostly a hen. but i bought assorted which is gonna be HARD. how old does it have to be to show effects it's sex?
Quote:It depends on the breed. Sexlinks are clear from day one. There are some self-sexing breeds that are "mostly" clear from day one like barred rocks. I believe the ones that take the longest to show are EasterEggers and Silkies. The professional vent sexing must be done before they start to eat.
