Hey there!

We've got our first chick from an incubator hatch we did, and wondering what sex this might be? We are hoping for a rooster, and I've watched loads of videos, but still have no idea. 😂 Seeking all of your expertise!

I read you can tell by the wings, so here was the best shot I could get with my daughter acting as photographer.

For reference, there only appear to be what look like feathers on the very end.

It's a Bantam x Leghorn chick, fyi.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice!

We can't tell sex at this age.
And wing sexing only works on certain crosses.
