How accurate is wing feather sexing??? Does anyone know? I don't have the heart to try the one where you pinch them behind the neck & let them dangle & vent sexing isn't happening either.

Not very. Only specific breeds, purposely bred to be feather-sexed, can be accurately sexed via this method.

Only vent sexing is reliably accurate, and even then the hatcheries (who are experts) only claimy about 90% accuracy.

Pinching and letting them dangle does not work, I tried it I should have had 6 pullets, instead I got 3 pullets and 3 cockerels so 50/50 I guess. Good luck.
