    How accurate do you think this chart is?
    If it's pretty spot on I have 5 roos and only 1 pullet. These were a tractor supply employee mistake. I have no idea what breed they are! They are 12 days old.

    Well, feather sexing only works on day old chicks. It also does not work for most breeds. They have to be bred for the trait for feather sexing to be valid.

    Ok. So this chart is incorrect? I'm completely new to this and this chart was given to me in a Facebook group.
