    Has anyone ever been able to tell if a chick is male or female by the way they stand as babies? I just hatched two and one stands taller and more upright and is less skittish than the other one. To me it just seems that it is a rooster. I will be keeping an eye on it to see if it develops earlier. I was just wondering what everyone thinks.

    I do think this turns out to be correct -- sometimes.
