    Chick one- splash

    Chick two - blue

    Chicks three- blue- I think
    [​IMG]
    Chick four- my darkest maybe blue or black

    These are my guesses, they are straight run , I don't think feather sexing works on wyandottes but I will say that chick one and two have more crowded/ messy primary feathers and chicks three and four have more clean/even primary feathers so ... Who knows?

    So here is an update: going by the idea female wyandottes get wing feathers faster, chicks 1 and 3 are feathering faster so may be girls, however I was told that the chicks may be a day apart in age.. If that is the difference, here are the pics.

    Thanks for following!! Feel free to ask for any different pics as we go. I'm obsessed and don't mind taking more haha. This is just a better shot of more feather growth on chicks one and three, still no feathers on two and four

    You can really see the difference in this side by side

    Following :) I've always been curious if feather sexing works with the BLRWs :)
