    [​IMG] There's lot's of good info to grow healthy chicks with BYC's . You may be able to identify your breeds with help from some of the forums and members.

    Good luck with your chicks.

    I ordered them through stromberg hatchery. First batch must of got squished. the new ones are doing great. I wish they were more social when i'm working in brooder they all scramble. Any hints to get them more social?

    My chick pic's are from months or so back. I am out of chicks at moment.

    Feather sexing is very accurate if it's done early, within 5 days of age is best..

    I found this site that shows how to feather sex. You can click to see different pics of roos and pullets.

    http://animalsciences.missouri.edu/reprod/ReproTech/Feathersex/sld002.htm

    When I learned I had it down after a few tries. It's about 90-95 %.for me. I sell a straight run but like to pull out some of the cockerels, so there is more pullets. My chicks are all gone. I am expecting a lot more to hatch in the up coming week.


    Good luck!
