Hi, My daughter wanted an excuse to get baby chicks and lots of them. She came up with the idea for a science project to test out a bunch of the old wives tales on sexing the chicks at day old. We raise bantams, so we would not know the gender anyway. Well, the chicks are here, but her list of wives tales is pretty short. I won't let her test anything that could injure the chick, but she could list any or all myths in the research part of the report. If it helps, she is raising bantam cochins. She is going to make a note of each chick, test each of the myths, and then raise them to 8 weeks old, when we can really tell the genders better. I will report back at the end, if any of the myths were more accurate than others. Please help add to the list of wives tales on sexing chicks. Do you know of any myths or theories on picking out pullet chicks at the feed store from a straight run bin? Thanks!
