In respect to this, how do you vent a chicken sex?
Vent sexing, also known simply asventing,involves squeezing the feces out of thechick, which opensup the chick's anal vent(called a cloaca) slightly,allowing the chicken sexer to seeif the chick has asmall "bump", which would indicate thatthe chick is amale.
Likewise, at what age can you tell if a chicken is a rooster? When sexing most juveniles, the best,mostfail-safe method is to look at the saddle feathers in front ofthetail when the bird is about 3 months old. Bythatage, cockerels will have long and pointysaddlefeathers, while a hen's will be rounded.
