    They're way too young, but I CAN tell you that most hatcheries will mark males with food coloring. So your white one is most likely male.

    She said that she hatched the eggs herself.

    What is the food coloring for?

    I have several peoples eggs in the bator and they all hatched at the same time. and it my way of keeping them from getting mixed up. they all actully have food coloring on them. i put red on What i feather sexed as males, but its just a guess. The others have purple, and green is unsure.
