    I have seen bits and pieces on here.
    Big feet and legs
    Bigger combs
    Earlier feathers means female
    Scruffing chicken to see if their legs hang or curl up.

    If there a comprehensive guide somewhere to help sex chicks?

    I often see people showing a photo and people say, "yup, that's a roo". How can they tell?
    Thanks for your help.
