    if you are talking vent sexing it is best if it is done in the first four days otherwise you risk injury to the chick.

    Your boys should have bigger feet and thicker longer legs than the girls, often they will carry themselves a little more upright.
    I definately have one boy , maybe two. My boy also has a dark pink comb that is bigger than the other chicks combs, the others are still skin coloured and smaller combs than he has. [​IMG]

    Take pictures and post them and ask everyones opinion. That would probably be the best thing to do.[​IMG]
