    I hatched 3 beautiful babies 2 days ago. Took some pictures of their wings. I'm a first time chicken owner. Can anyone take a guess.. male or female? [​IMG]

    You cannot feather sex these chicks unless you specifically crossed their parents had specific feathering traits and you crossed them purposely to be able to do it.
