Hatcheries sell sexed day old pullets. These show up at your local farm and feed stores. Yes a pullet is a female under 1 year of age. So yes you can buy day old pullets. Hope this helps clear up any confusion.Not sure if this is right but I always thought chicks were little fluffy babies and a pullet was when they aren't quite a year old but are fully feathered and kind of at that awkward stage...
If they are sex links the color is the clue. No mistakes for the hatchery on those. Others are sexed by wing feathers. They maintain 2 separate lines to make that work. All others are vent sexed. Some mistakes with that method but 90% + accurate. You must be trained to vent sex. I tried to learn it from books but all baby chick butts look alike to me.This avatar pic was taken a few days ago, I'm a new chick mom and wonder if there is a way to definitely know that these are pullets.
Thanks for the infoI'm having a blast with these girls! They were 4 weeks old yesterday.
