Any opinions? Again, sorry for the bad picture. I don't want to take them out of their warmth.

not sure if the same sexing applies to them as the Barred Rock but IF it does the one with the yellow feet would be the only male. The darker leg would be the females. like I said, that's if the same sexing applies to them which I'm not sure.

If that's the case, then PERFECT! Fingers crossed.
