Hi! I was just looking at some BR pics, and i couldn't help but notice something. If you look at the BRs beaks, the female has some black on its beak and the male's is all yellow. I looked at several pics and all of them had the same results. Could this be a way to tell gender between BRs? Here's two pics(one of a roo and one of a hen) Look closely at the beaks. see the difference? Female has black on beak, and male has all yellow. Look at some other pics, or look at your own chickens and see if the females have black on beaks and males have all yellow. Just an idea.
