Determining Sex of Brabanter Chicks
Is the chick a boy or a girl?

Brabanters Are Not Sex Linked

This photo is 1-week-old Cream Brabanter chicks. Brabanter chickens are not sex linked.

"Sex-links are cross-bred chickens whose color at hatching is differentiated by sex, thus making chick sexing an easier process. Sex-links come in several varieties. Many common varieties are known as the black sex-link (also called Black Stars) and the red sex-link (also called Red Stars)." -Wikipedia, Sex Link



Feather Sexing Brabanters Chicks Less Than a Week

It is possible to determine whether a chick is male or female by the wing feathers. There can be mistakes in determining gender so wait until they are older (4 months or more) to be absolutely sure.

On Brabanter chicks from newly hatched to 6 days old, the primary feathers are all the same length in males. They are different lengths in females. (Female feathers grow faster.)

Primary feathers are the largest flight feathers in a bird's wing.

"Just wanted you to know that I picked the Cream Brabanter eggs up at the post office yesterday. They are actually beautiful :). I will let you know what develops in a few weeks." -Sandi, Gaston, Oregon

Feather Sexing Brabanters Around 1 Week Old

The primary wing feathers develop more slowly in males than they do on females.

This photo and the 2 above and 1 below are from Heidi in Raleigh, North Carolina. The chicks are 1 week old.

"Love them! We had four Cream Brabanter eggs successfully hatch last Friday, and they are so sweet and cute! We love our babies! Already some of my favorites! And that's saying something since we have over 60 chickens right now!" -Heidi, Raleigh, North Carolina
Female Feathers Develop More Quickly

Female chicks develop their feathers quickly, usually in the first week. Male chick feathers are slower growing.
