    Anyone know what I should look for to sex my Sultans? They both look similar, except one is developing a bit faster than the other. I don't know what to look for to figure out what sex they are since these are our first Sultan chicks.
    Thanks!!!

    Crest sexing is misleading so it will take you a bit longer than a regular bird to find out the genders. Look closely for quickly developing, red/pink wattles and combs. Don't go by crest until it is fully developed. Can start out looking like one thing and turn into something else in just a few weeks...

    Oooh thank you. My little one hangs with and seems to protect three little outcast chicks that were added after the others they are all bigger but the sultan always seems to be looking for out for them.[​IMG]
