Getting them to hold still is the challenge. They are quite different from my original flock as far as behavior is concerned. Their parents were quite willing to hold still for the camera but not these guys. There is only one that likes to perch on my arm and spend time with me. The rest have an agenda. It's called.....don't get caught or hold still!
For this, you could hold the bird while a good head shot is taken. At the age of your birds their body will give no clues to sex.
I use a butterfly net to catch the few birds that I have that are not tame. With bigger breeds I would think that a fishing net would work well.
