    I found a hatching of chicks this morning....
    The hen is a barred rock, the rooster is a golden wyandotte.
    The chicks are black, some soild, some have white dots on thier heads , and some have white freckles on thier heads....
    Can i tell which are hens?

    Yep, Sex-Linked.


    The boys have the white dots, the girls are solid black.

    By that, she means that the freckles are also boys.
