I received a Silver Spangled Hamburg in with my Jumbo Cornish boys. I love it! Already very feathered at one week old! What a stunning bird it will be!
I was wondering if feather sexing works on this breed of chicken or not? It had all the indicators for a hen.
My Cornish boys are already twice the size of the Hamburg in one week! What a difference!

Glad you are enjoying your hamburg. Feather sexing is done when the chicks are newly hatched. It is not accurate after they are day old because they begin to grow feathers on their wing tips.
