    I know all of my BR chicks didn't struggle if you did this, but I just did it to hold them easily- didn't know it was supposed to indicate gender!

    I'm going to test all of my 7 chicks and keep statistics...

    btw, my BRs still lie still if I put them on their sides, and one lays like that in my lap if I sit still for her. Little clowns!

    I thought all chickens would do that if flipped onto their backs? I turn mine over just for fun sometimes when they are bigger, and they just lay there and look around. LOL. I've never had a rooster before, so I've never tried it with those. [​IMG]
