    These are my friends- aged 21, 19, 20 weeks respectively. Bought tentatively as pullets when chicks. All 3 have really sweet dispositions and love being held. I call on you for help sexing [​IMG]

    My "guess" is the first two are pullets and Cosita is a cockerel. Hope you get more that a guess from someone else! [​IMG]

    I love these guys, and keeping them as roos probably isn't an option since we live in the city. As difficult as it would be, I got them from a great breeder who is happy to take any boys back and exchange them. It's just too bad that we've all gotten so attached to each other:love
    Thanks for all the input, BYC. Keep it coming!
