    There is vent sexing (better to google that because I haven't tried that) and when they start to get their wing feathers you can tell that way too. If their feathers are all the same length its a cockerell and if there is a few shorter ones in the middle its a pullet. You have to do it when they are 4-6 days believe and then the feathers change again. But there are some breeds that even that doesn't work on.

    Good Luck!
