    Not Likely To Be Easy..... Both Of Those Color Strains Must Be Either Vent Sexed Or Beer Sexed.... And The Beer Sexing Will Have To Wait Til Next Spring. The Vent Sexing Will Be Difficult As They Are Not Full Grown Yet.

    BEER SEXING MUST BE PERFORMED WITH LIVE ADULT BIRDS DURING THE MATING SEASON

    1. ASSEMBLE YOUR GEAR--- BEER, ICE, COOLER,, PERHAPS SUN PROTECTION OF SOME SORT, LAWN CHAIR

    2. STAGE YOUR GEAR IN AN AREA THAT PROVIDES GOOD VIEW AND OBSERVATION OF THE SUBJECTS

    3. CRACK OPEN A BEER AND HAVE A SEAT

    4. THE HARD PART HERE.... WATCH! FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES...

    5. YOUR OBSERVATION RESULTS WILL EQUATE THE FOLLOWING:

    IF ITS THE BIRD ON TOP= DEFINATE ROO
    IF ITS THE BIRD ON THE BOTTOM= LIKELY HEN BUT MAY ALSO BE A LESSER RANKED AND UNFORTUNATE ROO
    IF IT LAYS AN EGG= DEFINITE HEN

    Also With Beer Sexing Its Important To Note That While Other Beverages Can Be Substituted Results May Vary....
