Chick Sexing Guarantee

We do sex most of our breeds at hatching. This procedure is about 90% accurate. This also means that you have a 10% chance of getting a rooster.

If you ABSOLUTELY can not own a rooster, please consider purchasing color sexable breeds found in our Auto Sexing category.

While we do our very best to sell properly sexed birds, please understand the difficulty in this task.
If you get a rooster that was sold to you as a sexed pullet, and you can not keep it, you can exchange it for another bird of the same price or breed. (this is limited to what we have in stock. Chances are, what we have in stock will be younger then your bird is by the time you realize she is a he.)
