    HI;

    I have some birds that I would like to move away from my meat birds (and put on a lower protein feed) if they are hens. How long do I need to wait before I can figure out if I have male for female birds? Would posting some close up photos of birds at 2-4 weeks be helpful at all?

    Thanks
    Jamie
     

  2. Depending on the breed, we may be able to help at 4 weeks. By 6 weeks, almost definately.
