It’s really too early to tell. Idk why, but I have a gut feeling this is a boy:

Of course it’s just a guess, for fun. :)

According to the picture I found just now (attached) the one you circled may be a boy. No pin tail, small wings, the wing feather is longer in the first and gets shorter at the bottom. Two of them are the same...Maybe I get one hen and two roosters😭

Feather sexing only works in very specific crosses. I believe that it is a slow feathering male breed over a fast feathering female breed, but I'm not sure. Otherwise, sexing with chick feathers isn't going to help.

Thanks. I will wait a little longer. By the way, the breed I have is black Australorps.

I got three chicks they are almost three weeks old. One of them is obviously different from the other two. It grows tail feather earlier and longer than the other two. and it's wings are bigger too. Any one can help to tell which is male? Thanks so much!
Sumatras I see.
Males will have less tail feathers then females for awhile before they catch up in a few weeks, then you won't be able to tell them apart.
