    Okay, these chicks were hatched 4 or 5 days ago (I can't remember for sure ... would have to look) and I was wondering if there was any way to sex them? I can tell my serama chicks as soon as the hatch by their combs, but these guys all looked the same. Now, after several days, I have 5 chicks sprouting tail feathers and 1 not. Is this a way to tell or is one chick just behind the others?

    No you really can not sex by feathers but by comb, if they get more redder than others, it MAY be a cockeral.

    Good luck!
