    Wing feather sexing only works for certain breeds at very young ages (about 1 day preferably). What breed of chick is it?

    They are day olds and I believe this one is a silki EE or silki Orpington? Definitely part silki though.

    It's hard to tell by the picture, but I'm thinking cockerel, although feather sexing isn't always accurate.

    Feather sexing only works if the parents have been bred specifically for that. So, I think that it is too young to determine gender on this chick.
