I have seen a few sites that show feather sexing, and it pretty much comes down to that the females have those 2 rows of wing tip feathers ( and they are longer) and the males have just one, and they are shorter. My true rumpless Araucana (not the Americauna or EE) week old chicks CLEARLY have two distinct feather arrangements amongst them, JUST as what is shown on those feather-sexing sites. They are either just like the first pic or just like the second pic. However, my Araucana breeder tells me you can't do feather sexing on them because they are not a "quick-to feather" breed. My chicks aren't even a week old and they have big feathers on their wing tips, and like I said, obviously two distinct arrangements. Why does it seem that every chicken person who is "in the know" (and I am not one of them!!!) doens't think feather sexing is accurate? I feel like I must be missing something and I would love to be informed! THANKS! The first pic is what I think is a female and the second is what I think is a male. They hatched last Thursday. Again, thanks for any insight!
