    I have 4 mottled houdan chicks. Three have black at the front of their crest and one has a white crest. Does this indicate sex or is it just random what color crest they have?

    Hmm. Looked at them some more. Three are all spiky and one has "helmet head". Looks like, judging from web pics, I have 3 males and 1 female [​IMG] Oh, well. Guess I got 2 males to sell.
