    Only certain breeds can be wing sexed and am not exactly sure what breeds can.

    I have no experience in wing sexing, but I found this thread that might be helpful to you. Maybe a little late for your chicks now, but here it goes:

    Sorry, I don't know how to paste the link here, so I just copied it. Good luck!

    Wing sexing does not work on all breeds. It only works if the parents have been bred specifically for it. So, it is probably too young to tell the gender on these chicks.
