Hi anyone really know how to sex young chick's?? I have Orbingtons and even at 6/8 weeks old they are not nessicerilly that easy to sexs from comb's and feathers. Combes on females can be quite red and large and they have lots of feathers. From a previous hatch I had 5 chicks 2 cockrells and three hens until they were truly feathered up and all ready out in my field. So 16 weeks old or so could I really start to tell who was a boy and who was a girl So does anyone really know??
