    [​IMG]Hi guys my partner and I have just moved to our first little farm and have bought chickens at our local market. I have so many questions about chickens and the things they do, one of which is how do I sex my little frizzle bantams I have 2 that I bought at the poultry auctions by complete accident. I'm hoping that they are both girls but it's possible that I have a boy and a girl, in that case I will need to re-home the boy so I don't have any incest breeding.
    I'm not sure if it matters but One has yellow feet and the other has black feet..
    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

    I wouldn't worry about incest in chickens. It would take several generations of in-breeding to have a problem with the resulting chicks. The picture is too small for me to make judgment- generally if you click on photos they enlarge. The "what breed or gender is it." thread are the ones to ask.
