    Is it true that you can tell if the chick is going to be female or male by lifting it upside down by the feet and if it fights it gonna be a roo and if it just lays back a pullet?

    If that were true, I think hatcheries would use that method rather than having to bring in vent sexing specialists. [​IMG]
