Wing sexing on chicks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently hatched out 10 chicks who are all 3 days old, a couple are 4. I tried to do the wing sexing on my own and I quickly got confused. Any guesses on what they may be? There should be pics available, some of the chicks may look the same but I can assure you the pics are all different chicks.
Thanks in advance! big_smile.png

Wing sexing only works for a very specific set of circumstances. You have to know for sure that the father was very fast feathering and the mother was very slow feathering. Not just slightly slower or faster than average, but significantly. It's the crossing of the fast feathering to slow feathering gene that allows for accurate feather sexing.

Otherwise, it's just guessing.

Only professionals can identify well through feather sexing.
