I have been told that you can sex BB Red chicks at hatch by looking at the color of the stripe around the eye. The females will have a dark stripe and darker stripes down the back as well. The males will be lighter around the eye and light stripes down the back. Does anyone else have experience with this?

I wonder if anyone has tested this out to determine it is actually a fact.

Good to see some replies on this site. I was thinking of testing it out on my next hatch to see how reliable it is.

Pretty sure this holds true for just about all partridge wild type with salmon breasts in female. BB's, Spangles,Crele, all the duckwings. The exception would be Red Pyles. It don't work for them.
