    Dear friends,
    we're new at this hobby and would really appreciate some help with getting your opinion on gender of our 6 birds here. We bought a mixed bag of "heritage birds" about a year ago...and we incubated some eggs, 6 of which hatched. They're from May 15 - so 14 weeks old. One is starting to crow (I won't tell you which, just for fun)...and we are gonna have to get rid of the boys. Sometimes we think that's ALL of them, the way they look and act. In any case, you'd be our hero if you'd be able to identify some femininity in this batch:)

    Here's Buttons:

    and Charchoal

    then comes Rhody:

    and Peeps (our smallest and a real runt from day 1)
    [​IMG]
    Chestnut

    Brownie

    Hopefully my images are coming up ok in the post. If you're not 100% sure on the gender, can you put down what the percentage of confidence is in your opinion? [​IMG] Thanks again!! Yvonne
    PS if my photo is not good enough or needs a different angle, please let me know too!

    Hate to say it but to me they look like all boys, and if I had to guess Charcoal is the crower.
