    Here is a picture showing the wing of my bird in question. I'm not sure if this will show enough. I had a hard time getting this chick to open his/her wing at all for the picture!

    This is the bird with its pinkish comb.

    I think there is only one breed that you can sex by looking at their wings. Give them a few more weeks and then repost their pics. I know...its hard to wait isnt it.[​IMG]

    Quote:it proves fairly true with games.. But it has to be to done early before they get their "big boy" (or girl) feathers.. Or so i've been told. I always did it as day olds. Give him/her some time to mature and post another picture (About the time all the "Fuzz" is gone will be fine).

    It certainly is hard to wait. I had heard that wing tests aren't reliable on all breeds, but thought it was worth a try. Thank you!
