I at Rural King today looking at chicks and you have to 25 at a time right ? Well not today they were 50 each so I wanted three girls to make an even 10 a home. I said but I want only girls. They had no clue but a farmer did. She take the chicks wings at spread them out if all the feathers are the same size it is male. and if the closer feathers to the body are short female. Well I trusted her and thought when i get home I will check my other chicks which I can tell what there are and she was RIGHT (so far). If any of you have been told this or different PLEASE let me know .
