These two hatched about 1.5 weeks ago. I know that’s a little early, but I found a “wing sexing” article. I’m not sure how true it is, but I thought I’d give it a shot. I’m pretty sure they’re both leghorn eggs fertilized by an americauna roo. What are your thoughts?

If you have males and females, you will be pretty confident by 6 weeks bc you’ll be able to compare. As noted, they do develop fast, and wing sexing only works the first day or two and only for certain breeds.

I agree with the others. Why is one of them's feathers like that? 😂😂 Is it genetic or some type of accident? I have never seen anything like that! I wonder how it'll feather out!!
