Do all chipmunk striped chicks turn out to be roosters... seems like it?
it depends what breed it is. I had speckled sussex and they had a big stripe down their back but 4 out of the 5 were females...
I had several EE "chipmunk" chicks that are all female. My black/white ones now, those turned out to be boys.
my wife and I raise welsummers and if the chick has the dark chipmunk stripe they are always female.
Well, I guess the answer is "no". I have mixed mutt Bantams and my striped chicks always seem to turn into roos? I just had a hatch 3 days ago and I have 3 solid color and one striped... wishful thinking ,I guess.
We had an Ameraucana chick who looked so much like a chipmunk that we called her that. she lost her stripes as she got older but she turned out to be female, and now i have a deformed chick who looks exactly like the other one. i cant tell yet if its female but id like to think so, since the look completely identical. i guess it just depends on random chance!
Definetly not both roo or pullets can be chipmonk striped also known as wild type
All of my speckled sussex chicks look like chipmunks for the first 2 weeks, regardless of sex.
