sexing chickens for despatching (not for the feint hearted)

Recommended Posts


Our chicks are growing fast and are 3 months now so we are looking at despatching a few for the table (as was always the intention for the boys)


Tonight we have been out and had a good look at them but they all (well 11/13 Have what looks like the starting of spurs. (there is a bud like growth)


do only males have these or are they something totally different? Any advice is welcome, and needed.


1 is definitely a boy as we saw him crowing yesterday! BUT when we posted pics of them hatched we had a few comments about 2 being cream legbars girls but they seem to have this growth too!
