The following link is on gender identification of Hy-line chicks (includes photos), & has the Hy-line Browns.

Dr Okimoto has posted in the past that he has found both eWh & eb alleles in commercial lines (DNA tested), & I would guess that the striped Hy-line Brown chicks are eWh/eb.

That is allot of great info.. thanks a ton... I sex my own chicks by color. I have two males right now that show two different colors on their body, but they both show the main coloring of being white headed... smile You could breed White Rock over a New Hampshire and have birds that have white tails... that would be Wheaten....
