    In some breeds of chickens you are able to feather sex them. You look at their wing feathers and if they have two rows of feathers that are different lengths they are female. If the feathers are the same length it is a male. This method can only be used in certain breeds and must be done at a young age. For a better explanation, look up feather sexing chicks. [​IMG]
