    I saw a post on here awhile back about this, but can't find it now.

    Anyone know?

    Sexing chicks is an art. People who accurately sex chicks can command thousands of dollars a day. Needless to say, it takes years to learn how to sex chicks.

    Depends on the breed, too. All can be vent sexed, but some can be color sexed or wing sexed. Just depends. The best method is the "wait and see" method, LOL.
