    Went to Tractor Supply today and guess what? They have peeps already!!! They have SLW peeps...I've never had any of that breed. How do you tell when they are peeps which ones are pullets? Or is it a toss up like with Easter Eggers?


    Thankx for the help!!!

    Dottes are one of the harder breeds to sex at any age...you might be better flipping a coin [​IMG]

    Usually at the feed store, the chicks are between 1 day to a week old. That way they still look all cute when they are in the store.
    I don't think you will be able to tell the sex at that age. If you do try guessing you will have a 50/50 chance of being right [​IMG]
