A couple of weeks ago I had a really good hatch of buff leghorn chicks. They were shipped eggs and the chicks are my first experience with Buff's.
Within the first week, I noticed that about 1/2 are exhibiting darker colors in the emerging wing feathers. The other half of the hatch are solid buff color - EVERY WHERE. Add to that, the fact that the ones exhibiting a darker color on the wings are slower feathering, I am wondering....
Are buff leghorns color sexed? Are the dark wing feathered chicks the cockerels?
I've googled BYC and the Internet. I searched images. I just can not find anything to tell me.
So is it possible? ? Are the dark wing feathered chicks little cockerels?
