    We had seven chicks hatch from the batch of eggs my hen Maggie laid. I believe she is an Americen Game breed (that's what all the other hens and roosters looked like when I got her. Four chicks are kinda a 'chipmunk color', two are yellow and one is light yellow/ almost white. Is there a way to tell the sex? I am not sure which rooster fathered them. Thanks

    Yes there is a way to tell based on color, it depends on the breed, but probably not in your case.
