Poultry owners once had to wait 5 to 6 weeks to find out the sex of chicks before determining male from female. The way to identify a chickens sex is only able to be done when adult feathers start to appear and cockerels (males) developed their feathers differently than pullets (hens).

Daniel teaches the value of determining a chickens sex within the industry. The way Daniel teaches this skill required is recognized and Mr Martin said top sexers may earn $400-$700 a day plus expenses. A fair day’s work could see 5000-7000 chicks sexed.
