Hi!

I'm very new to raising chickens and would like to know if I have got male or female chicks growing.
I have googled myself crazy already.
There are three of them right now and these are pics of their wings.

Thank you!

Too young to tell. And sexing by wing feathers doesn't usually work. Wait till they are older than 8 weeks, then you look at their combs and saddle feathers.

Welcome!
Post pictures of the entire chick, one at a time would be nice, but clear photos anyway, at about three weeks of age.
Wing feather sexing isn't in play here at all.

Salmon favorelle males and females have entirely different coloration. If I remember right it’s most obvious in their chest color when young.
The wings of salmon Favorelles will be distinctly different color after about 2-3 weeks with males a black color and females having brown (which this appears to). Hatchery females have some black too but it fades out over time as it's replaced by the brown coloring.
