    Hi! Does wing feathering show sex in a ee/black sex link cross or in straight ee? Moms are hatchery, not sure about dad. He is an ee. Chicks hatched in incubator Tuesday evening to night. 2 from each mom. One has more developed wing feathers than the others.[​IMG]

    Yellow, with feathers has ee mom, chipmunk with wing fuzz has bsl mom. Here is dad.

    I have another chipmunk colored one from the bsl and a really fuzzy brown one from the ee, as well. The last two have wing development similar to the chipmunk shown.
    Anyway, disjointed post, but any ideas on gender this early? I will try to post pics of the other two tomorrow.
    Thank you!

    Edited to fix spelling....
