    My wife and I just vent sexed our 10 9 week old chicks and came out with 5 boys and 5 girls. I think 4 of these are Rhode Island Reds, but I'm unsure of the brown colored one. The guy I bought them from said the borwn ones were Game CHickens,,

    If you are saying you thought these were all cockerels, maybe you should post a pic of the remaining birds. [​IMG]

    Vent sexing is really only accurate at hatch. You don't need to flip these guys over and look at their private parts, just check out those combs. The big guys are some type of hatchery red roosters and the little girl does look gamey.

    Also, vent sexing can damage chickens. Geese and Ducks you can vent sex, not sure about Turkeys and other fowl.
