    Hi, I currently have two, one day old pheasant chicks. Is there any way to sex them?

    Thank you so much! This helped a lot! :) I was wondering why my chicks had different markings. I definately have 1 male and one female, if this is accurate as it seems :D

    The markings are a bit of an indicator[males seem to have a bit of a lighter area around the eyes, because their fleshy face patch is already under there.], but the biggest thing you want to look for is that skin fold at the cheek. Might be under the fuzz, so that is why the fluff is parted there in the picture. You can tell the female only has a little nub and the male already has the beginnings of a wattle.
