    (She wasnt being very cooperative at the time and decided to shake her head. This was her best picture)
    They started growing wattles and it got me thinking. So what do you think?

    They are both girls. [​IMG] By 5 months PQ boys, especially the non-bearded ones are obvious.

    Their very spherical crests (I don't see streamers) makes them look like pullets. But with silkies it is difficult.

    Very cute! [​IMG]

    The parrtidge is definitely a pullet, and I think the buff is as well.
