Wing sexing Easter egger/BPR mixes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had 8 out of 11 eggs hatch with our first round with a broody hen. 6 eggs were from my Easter egger hens under my BPR rooster. The other 2 are either BPR or jersey giant BPR crosses. Wondering if I can use the feather sexing technique to sex the babies. Based on this it seems like I have half and half, maybe 5 to 3... Female to male.

Go to the Sex linked information thread.  There's a feather sexing chart.  You'll probably read that feather sexing is not possible with EE.  But, if you look at the wing primaries (immediately after hatch), and see a staggered feather pattern, that MIGHT indicate female, and if the primaries are all the same length, that might indicate male.  

Ephesians 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
