    Oh my! They are precious! They are very dark blue. Congrats!

    Watch the toe on the first one. See the tip? It can break easily and be an odd shaped toe. Keep a very close eye on it.

    I am going to test my skills - I predict #2 is a pullet.

    [​IMG] Well, here are more hints for you...Chick 2 is about 3/4 the size of chick 1. They are both very calm chicks, but Chick 1 will walk about when you are trying to take pictures. Chick 2 will squat and I have to make her stand so I can get a pic of her feet. Neither one of them are mean....I am voting that they are both pullets! (may be just wishful thinking!! [​IMG] )

    I have found a very constant rule - the first chick to hatch is always a roo. Seriously. Never failed yet. LOL

    It won't sit still long enough for me to check it's wings and I didn't want to hurt it. [​IMG] We'll see if he crows!
