    This little one just hatched today. I've read Males are lighter in color and have a distinct spot on their head, and females have a dark chipmunk stripe. But this little chick has a distinct chipmunk strip AND a light dot!? Help! Is it a roo or a hen? :jumpy

    I know they are sex linked, but cant remember how. Try showing the pictures on the legbar thread, they could tell you.

    It is a female. Female CL can have a very small head dot. Your chick has dark down and a very distinct not blurred chipmunk pattern. So congrats she is a pullet.
