Anyone have experience sexing by markings?

    Just hatched a clutch of mixed breed babies. They are predominantly what has been termed as a "wild" marking pattern, with dorsal stripes. The theory holds that sharp lines and patterns equals hen and blurry or no distinct equals too. My chicks are American game over Asil. Anyone have experience with the accuracy of this method of sexing?
