My sneaky game hen keeps running off and having babies, unfortunately. I think I've noticed that the more colorful they are at birth, the more more likely they are to become roosters. I would assume this is because they are less genetically manipulated than the domestic backyard hens and nature wants the boys to be flashier and more attractive. I was wondering if anyone else thinks that for *game fowl* only, the gender can be more or less determined upon hatching by their plumage? In other words, I suspect this little sucker is going to be a rooster because his little feathers are more patterned than his all-black siblings. Any thoughts?
