    Have you guys ever noticed that on day-old Golden Sebright chicks, that the roosters tend to have more gold on their heads? This happened to me. I had two with alot more gold on their head and one with slightly more than the others. The rest had very little gold around their eyes and beak area. The ones with more gold are roosters, and the ones with less are hens. They are 7 weeks old now and I can surely tell. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I have 3 seabright chicks that are all pullets, they have pretty dark heads, almost no gold on them, and they are around 9 weeks or so.
