    This is Bernadette (or maybe Bernie Mac?)

    And Beyonce'

    They were purchased 5/30/14. Bernie was about 2 weeks at that time (she had tail feathers so that was my estimate) and Beyonce was about a week younger.

    I'm pretty attached to them, but I'm afraid they're roos.

    Thoughts???
    Thanks.

    It does look like I'm seeing some longer feather towards the tail.....I think they're called saddle feathers, but I'm not 100% sure.......

    I hope you're right! It just seems like their combs are pinker than the other girls' were at that age. And they are feisty!
    Sorry there was poop in one pic, thought I cropped that out.
