    I just hatched a chick off a lavender ameraucana roo and a silver duckwing Phoenix hen. Is that a cross that can be feather sexed? If so I have long pin feathers so its a pullet??

    I know Phoenix are fast feathering but I'm not sure if ameraucana are considered slow feathering..

    Ill take better pictures once it dries.. But I can see through the window and have a better view and there are definitely long pin feathers.

    I saw an interesting thing that if you look at the chicks wings you can get a clue as to what gender it is. This pic may help.
