    I know that a long time ago....I saw a video on a cable channel that said that you can tell the sex of chicks by stretching out their wings and looking at the feathers. [​IMG]

    When I did that to my almost 1 week old little guys today...there definately is some with two rows of different lengths and some with rows of tiny feathers all the same length.

    I do not remember which was which. Does anyone else know this to be true?? It may just work on production house chicks??!! [​IMG]
