    Watched an excellent video on figuring out if you have a hen or a roo and have discovered that both of mine are hennies. So happy

    What was the method? Some are myths or can only be used on certain birds.

    I'm sorry, I can't view videos on here. Could you tell me the method? Alot of methods don't work, so don't want you to be disappointed!

    Its just
    Its just a close up view of the cloaca. If there is a bump, its a roo. If its a round hole, its not. Its not a mythical look at the feathers, or size of feet, just simply looking at where either the egg comes out, or the sexual organs are. The video is 2 very small children doing this on much younger chicks so i do feel confident. Its a youtube video

    How old are the chicks. I've heard this is only accurate within the first 24 hour of the chick's life. I think any time after then the females will develop very similar to the males and can also be life threatening if not performed within the first 24 hours.

    How can looking at the cloaca be life threateming?
