OK, so when will you know who's a boy and who's a girl? My 8 chickens (ameraucanas, brown leghorns, australorp and buff orpington) are now about 6 weeks old. When is it that you'll be able to tell who's who? Also, is the "Japanese" method of sexing really as difficult as it sounds? After I got the chickens (couple days old), I had a kid who was in FFA at school sex them. But everywhere you read says how it takes years to learn how to do it... seems a little crazy to me. I know how to sex baby bunnies and that's pretty simple. But now I'm having my doubts. My 3 straight run brown leghorns were supposedly two pullets and one rooster. But by the way their combs are growing, I'd say they're the exact opposite.... Any thoughts?
