I have read somewhere and saw a picture that you can tell a roo from a hen by how their wings are developing? Any truth to this? If so when can you begin to tell the diff? thanks!!

I was just shown (literally, like an hour ago) that on Salmon Faverolles the male will have longer feathers on the outer part of the wings, while the female has a more consistent length all the way across. NO idea if I explained that well, but it made sense when he was showing me.
