    I am notoriously pants at gender, so i consider it a sport (50-50 chance and all that...). Others will no doubt chime in very soon. I'd expect to see more saddle feather development if they were boys though.

    You'll get your answer in a short while, I'm sure.

    All the best and fingers crossed they are girls!

    Oh I hope so, I had one more that ive given away was definitely a rooster he had green long saddle feathers, but his comb is the same as the one I think is a girl.. so confused !

    Ok, my 'guess' pullets on #1 & #3 but #2 not sure, the neck feathers look narrower than the other two so maybe cockerel? Love these guessing games.
