    My FIL bought me 6 "Red Assorted" chicks from TSC... He claims that their all female and that he can tell by the size of their head?!

    I am really afraid I will have 6 roosters and no pullets when it's all said and done![​IMG]

    You can't tell by the size of their heads, but you can tell by their wing feathers and/or coloring. They look like Red sex link to me - meaning they are all hens.

    I've never heard of the sexing by the size of their heads either! He's not even keeping them under a heat lamp, he takes them away from their food and water box, puts them in the TSC carry box and sticks them in a coat to keep warm. I hope he doesn't kill them but I really can't say anything because it the In Laws, yuo know?!
    But thanks for your input! I'm really hoping their Sex Links, so I can quit worrying about the gender!
    Thanks Again!![​IMG]
