I have some random mutt chicks that need sexing. I don't need to know the breeds (not yet, anyway), I just want some guesses on genders so I can decide whose going to freezer camp. I have been guessing according to the tail feathers. Roosters feather out slower, yes? Some of mine have almost no tail while some have a very developed tail, and I am guessing the no-tailed chicks are male. I'm probably wrong, though, because it looks to me like only 4 out of 12 are males. #1 - Swarley - My guess is pullet #2 - Jayy Von - I think pullet (photo's kinda big ) #3 - Beans - cockerel? #4 - Noodles - pullet? I didn't post pictures of all of them because if I know what these are and what gives it away I will be able to tell with the others because they all look one way or the other - long-ish tail feathers or no tail feathers. Thanks in advance for any help!
