    I hatched out some Rhode Island red x Gold laced Wyandotte chicks last Sunday (so a week today). There are 17 of them, some pale brown and some darker, almost black. I know they are only a week old but I really want too know as soon as I can. Does anybody know any early-age tips for sexing this cross or something similar (they all have rose combs).

    Thanks,

    Oh and also, some of my chicks have black around their eyes that looks like eyeliner. Does this have anything to do with the sex?
