Total noob. Saw an ad for 3 week old sexed chicks so I thought perfect...as a beginner I don't have to worry about fragile day olds or mail order. I go to pick them up a young boy is pulling them out looking at their wings. I ask what he's doing and hes telling the boys from the girls based on wing feather length...at three weeks old. It sounded kinda legit and I was out there so I took 8 home. 4 Easter eggers, 1 buff orpington, 1 australorp, 1 rir and 1 light Brahma. Of note every single chick he looked at happened to be female. Now that they're home I'm really worried I got basically straight run and will end up with roos which I can't legally have, nor do they have a place in my forever flock for eggs only...i don't believe in animal slaughter so the thought of having roos to dispose of is really upsetting me. Anyone know...can those breeds be sexed by wing feather length at 3 weeks old? Also should I wake them up to handle them or do they sleep all night long?
