    Even if they were bred for wing sexing that wouldn't do any good at this age

    How old is this chick now? I'm thinking cockerel with the wattles.

    When properly/selectively bred for it the combination of fast feathering roo and slow feathering hen causes the offspring to inherit the reverse and the cockerels feather in slower than the pullets and the cockerel wings for the first couple days will appear with the primary and secondary feathers being the same length whereas pullets will have two lengths of feather. After a few days this is not noticeable however and you have to watch for feather rate and other more reliable signs like comb/wattle development
