    Hopefully, I am about to become a chicken keeper (I have 12 frizzle eggs incubating as I speak). I have found this the best website available and much appreciate the fabulous information it contains. I am only going to be able to keep the hens and have sourced a local farmer to take the cockerels. This is going to be awful. At what age will I be able to tell the difference between the sexes?

    Welcome to the forum! I don't know about frizzles, but with other chickens you can probably get a pretty good idea by about 8 or 9 weeks. [​IMG]

    I think it has to do with the old adage..."don't count your bitties until they hatch"...[​IMG]
