Okay... So ive wanted to raise chickens for a long time- finally i bought some chicks yesterday. Bantams are easiest for me to raise, i dont have a large property but i have a large enough backyard for a small flock of small chickens. I have 6 chicks currently- the unfortunate part however is i have no clue how old they are, or what species of bantam... (well i got two i knew the breed and one was already sexed- a lovely silver lace pullet and an unsexed barred rock, i believe it was) or what their sex is. Sex is specifically important because in my town i cannot own a rooster in a residential area (because they are typically noisy). Any tips on how i can tell age or sex of young chicks? I dont want to hurt them by being inexperienced with a vent sexing- and feather sexing isnt accurate enough especially if i dont know their genetics... I can also try to provide photos of each in a bit.
