    I KNOW I was reading a post at some time about the size and shape of the spot of a chicks head and its relevance to its sex.

    Granted, I can't find the thread now. [​IMG]

    I've got a few chicks that just hatched and I'd like to take a guess at their gender.

    I think it would also depend on the breed. What are they?

    These babies are Cuckoo Marans. But one of them has a very nice sized spot and the other two are more smudgy.
