    I bought 8 buffs this afternoon and did the whole 'hang upside down and if the curl' thing. 7/8 curled up! Somebody please tell me this is an old wives tale and I dont have 7 roos!!!

    I would not be hanging my chicks upside down or by the neck. You may just have to wait it out like the rest of us. Predicting gender is along the lines of the things that people do to predict the sex of a child, like if the needle goes round or back and forth.

    It is an old wives tail, and I think if they curl up they are pullets.
