How do I know if I have a hen or a cockrel when they are born?
There really is no way to tell except for vent sexing and that is usually for the professionals. The only way you can tell is when they get older. I don't know the exact age. When vent sexing they have to be day olds or younger.
i saw a show about a company that sells to the poultry farms,, they tell by looking at their wing feathers. if the feather starts out fluffy from the very beginning to end of feathers its a male,,if it looks like a dandelion seed,,,,stem,, then fluff,,, then its a girl.
but,,, it was on "hows it made" soooo , i dont know,, but we just had a few hatch,, and we're gonna try to keep track which 1 was which, and see if it works.
other then "venting" i have to wait for eggs or crows,,haha
