    I've got 6 buff laced polish/frizzle polish chicks that have just started to hatch I've heard a lot about wing sexing that u can do soon after they hatch would it work on large fowl polish?

    True wing feather sexing is a sex linked trait that must be created using careful selection of the parent stock so, no, in your situation it would not be applicable to the chicks that you hatch.

    I'm afraid not on polish. If it could be done I would have been doing it for years! I'm afraid polish are notoriously hard to sex and some of mine keep me guessing for up to six months.

    Good luck with your hatch :fl
