    I just hatched out a dozen American Dominique eggs. I was told that these can be sexed as day olds by color. They all look the same to me. Can someone tell me or direct me to a link that can tell me how to sex these? Pictures would be great.

    The roosters are silver rather than black. You will be able to tell within a week or so. I'll see if I have any pics.
