I Want To Hatch And Raise Chicks But I Can't Keep Roosters. So I'm Giving The Males To The Feed Store. But I Don't Want To Wait For Them To Mature. I Want To Know How To Tell The Day They Hatch.

There are several autosexing breeds in the US, but if you are buying eggs to hatch, even sex-links will work for you. If you can't keep a roo, even the autosexing breeds are as much a "dead end" for your flock.

If you want true auto-sexing, try these:
cream legbar - blue eggs
rhodebar - light brown eggs
welsummer - dark brown eggs (not all stains are real dark and not all strains autosex easily)

save yourself a few bucks and dont buy the males, get yourself Black Sexlinks, they are so easy to sex at hatch that hatcheries will send you only the females if you chose...
