    and how do you do it?

    i know i'm a newbie, but why does no one post photos of little baby chick bottoms for others to offer an opinion on their gender?

    any advice would be great [​IMG]

    Vent sexing is very difficult and isn't as easy as just looking at the butt. Below is a link to video that shows how it is done.

    I don't think you can vent sex "day old" chicks can you? I was of the impression they had to pretty much be newly hatched, that it couldn't be done after they have gone potty?
