    Can anyone tell me if you can tell their sex at birth? I got my order yesterday and 5 are dark chipmunk striped with dark eye lines. The other 2 are very much lighter, only faint striping and no lines around their eyes. I know the eye lines in Welsummers mean pullets. Is that so with Creles? I'm hoping so!!

    I don't know about the eye line thing....but usually the lighter crele birds are cockerals...
