    Has this worked for anyone? I was told if you pick a chick up with your thumb and index finger and if the legs hang down it's a cockerel and if they are near it belly is a pullet. Has anyone tried this before and worked?

    She asked if it worked, and I think all the she wanted was a yes or no. Stop being know it alls and being so quick to jump people here.

    Btw, I don't think that's the case in telling if it's a roo or a hen but it is a good question.

    Good luck!
