    I read somewhere about there being a debate on tail feathers determining the sex of a chick and I'm just wondering your thoughts? I have some 1 week old Brahma babies and one half have very distinctive little tail feathers were as the other half don't have any at all. Coincidence or is there some fact to the tail feathers? Thanks so much!!
