    So I have two chicks which are two different breeds. The one on the left has longer wings and has started to grow tail feathers and the one on the right is a bit bigger, but has small wings and no tail feathers. Could the one on the right be a boy because of it's slow feather growth or is every breed different?

    U can try to hold them by their feet or lay them on thier backs. If they stop moving its a hen keep moving its a roo. Best way to tell is when they feather out look at the feathers at the base of the neck. If their come to a point its a roo if rounded its a hen worked a 100% for me so far.
