Sexing pigeon babies – how to decide if the squab is male or female?

Somebody sent me this picture that shows you how to tell the sex of the baby pigeon in the nest.

If the bottom of the squab smiles :) it is a male, and if it frowns, it is a female :(. This is kinda funny but also intriguing. Let’s test this and see if it works. I will update the topic when more real life data will be available.
