    Who can offer advice to a novice regarding sexing of chicks in the 4 to 8 week old category? I'm wanting to get some BR's this weekend and I'm only interested in pullets. The guy has 28 of them in that age range.

    EDIT - Never mind. I found my answer in another thread. Thanks anyway.

    In case it wasn't mentioned Barred Rock pullets usually will have a black wash on front of legs. General stance at that age range will speak volumes too.
