    I have 3 precious GCM chicks from pasofinofarm eggs - I am pretty sure 1 is male and 1 is female, but I'm not sure on the third one. Take a look...

    I'm pretty sure it's a boy on right, girl in middle, but what about the one on the left?

    From the looks of it I would say two girls and a boy. More white = boy is what I have been told. They are beautiful chicks D:
