Sexing baby chickens is not a very glamorous job but a necessary one. Wait until your chickens have lost their fuzz. Scoop up a group of feathers at the neck with an index card and examine the ends of the feathers. Rounded ends represent female and pointed ends are male. You can also pick up your chicken by the nap of the neck and lift off the ground. If the feet hang down, it is probably a male but if the feet are tucked up close to the body, it is a female.
