    i would have to see a wing spread out. I have for 20 years or more, have 99% accuracy at picking male and female, at 2 days old the female will have longer pin feathers than the males, as they age you will notice wing feathers will start approaching the rear faster than the cockrels, and the tail feathers of chicks same age the females will have longer tail feathers or tail feather bunch will longer or bigger
     
  7. It won't stay still long enough for me to take a picture!
