Good Morning!

As I am new to backyard chicken raising, I have a question pertaining to the sexing of chickens. I bought my adorable little fuzzballs with feet from Tractor Supply Co. I bought egg-laying female chicks. In their description they mention a 90% accuracy. While I have no issue with any of that, my primary question is how will I be able to tell if I have males in my flock? My township will fine me heavily if I have one, so I want to know before one of them wakes up one morning and turns into Frank Sinatra to the 'delight' of my neighbors.

Can anyone offer ideas? Thanks!

Thats a good question that I am not capable of answering. The collection of chicks was a given description of 10 rare breeds, 10 common breeds. It provided a 'laundry list' of possible breeds of both, but doesn't get specific. I CAN tell you that half of them are currently dark feathered, and the other half are yellowish. That doesn't help, I know, but its all I got. And they're just too cute.

Can you post pictures and the hatchery you hot them from? Sometimes we can figure out what you have
