Hello everybody! I am planning on raising some chicks in the spring and am interested in knowing how to tell if a chick is a hen or a rooster at the young age. I understand that if I do end up with a rooster in the bunch (I hope to get all hens) he won't start making noise for a while. However my family, and our neighbors, wouldn't be too keen with a rooster waking us all up early in the morning. So, to try to save my self some sleep come spring, I'd like to study up and learn how to tell rooster from hen ASAP, so I could get the rooster on the BYC BST forum quickly. Thanks for your help and expertise!
