    Unless you know the specific feathering (fast or slow) of each parent, there is no accurate way to feather sex at this age. To feather sex you need a parent with the slow feathering gene and the other with the fast feathering gene. The male chicks will have shorter feathers while the females will have longer looking wing feathers at a day or so old. You may have to wait until they are older to know.
