Is It Possible To Sex ISA Brown Mix Chicks?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by roostersandhens, Oct 15, 2014.

  1. Can you still sex them as day old chicks when they are half ISA Brown, half something else?

    No - second generation is not sex linked.

    The only way to sex ISA Brown mixed chicks is through vent sexing. The sex-linked trait only lasts one generation.
