    It's been said that chick “professional sexing” is 98% accurate.
    Well... I bought four dozen newly hatched chicks 30 days ago in what is supposed to be all pullets.
    This one strikes me as odd from the rest of the herd.
    None of the 49 others is showing any wattles or comb like this one.
    Not that it is awful to have a roo in this batch or anything like that, just wondering if my intuition can be confirmed.
    Any thoughts are appreciated![​IMG]

    Most experienced sexers will have 85-90% accuracy, 98 is pushing it a bit far. Your suspicions are looking justified at this point - but I would really like to see this bird again in another week or two.

    Can you get a side picture of his/her wings and tail in the same picture? If not that is okay! :) I have some chicks right now, so I should know how hard it is to get a chick to be still! LOL
