    I started raising baby bantam chicks last year and my favorite is the White Crested Polish Bantam. I have 3 that are a year old now and 1 that has black and white feathers all over that I could got this year. The 3 from last year are laying eggs but none are fertile. How do you tell a male from a female when they are a year old?
