    3 Week old SLW and EE, advanced wing and tail feathering, any guesses? the SLW had more wing and tail feathers than the other 2 SLW so I kept it. The EE has always been the biggest with most feathering on tail and wings. got them from MPC and they are supposed to be female. thanks for the help!

    Yes, those legs on the EE made my guess (as I saw the photo right now) a roo.

    I will take some photos of them now, before and after, sorry for reviving an old topic, but it kept staring me in the face when I went to my profile page.
    I am guessing the thicker legs on the EE should have given him away and has been a trick I think back now to when looking at others. He is handsome now and she is a good girl. They are out leading the mongrel flock now at the farm.
    you could say, they started it all in motion.
