    Is there an early trick to sexing SSH chicks? Do the roos get white wing feathers and the hens spangled? I saw a photo like this and was wondering. Anyone?

    By the second or third week you should definitely see a difference in comb size, even though the combs are small, they are much larger in males. In 40 years I have not seen a difference in feather color, but that doesn't mean it is not true.
