Guessing the Sex of Chicks

No, that's not what I'm doing today. What I'm doing today is being stuck at the less reliable computer center, which is closer to home. Other computer operations don't work as well here so today I'm going through a backlog of older e-mails to e-publications that work better with this older computer, and here's what I found...

How useful is information about how to determine whether a baby chicken is going to grow up to be a hen or a rooster? If you've promised one pet chicken to someone who lives in a suburb where hens are tolerated but roosters are illegal, either of the two methods amateurs can use should suffice...just promise to take the bird back if it's accused of being a rooster.
