    Is it an accurate was to sex a bird? For instance, is the brown easter egger (on the right) in theory a boy, as the wing weathers are much less developed than the lighter one on the left that has more feathering?

  2. Some people do tell the sex by the wing. But the EE in the pic, is "he" younger than the others? Because the wing development depends on age.
