Your birds are very feminine looking. They're soft, rounded, no long flashy feathers in the hackle or saddle area, and a nice small comb that's turning red.
I've been told that the top two pics is a roo and the bottom one a pullet with a roo bending his neck. Can you confirm this for me please? These pics were taken a week ago. The two suspect roos combs have gone a tiny bit redder.
Also, any idea on how to stop them from sleeping on the ground and consequently lying on their poo. As you know they poo as they sleep. They look permanently dirty but will not use their dustbath as it's a little too cold for them I think.
