Hi all of you chicken fans!! I have a question about my leghorn chicks. They are almost 9 weeks old now and I'd like to know how I can tell a rooster from a hen in looking at them? Would like a response; sounds like a silly question. but I'm new at this.

Maybe someone can tell me if the way I was told to tell roosters from hens works.... I was told that if you pick up a chick, and turn it over on its back - a rooster will keep its legs out, while a hen will pull its legs in close to its body. Myth or misinformation or actually true? :)
