    This is the smaller and darker of the glw - it is about 13 weeks old. Any idea??? Can't find the pointy feathers on it but might not be looking right - its bro is definitely a bro - tail feathers - shiny pointy head feathers etc... but not sure of this one.

    Here is another view of same bird -


    here is one of three BRs named Marion - any ideas. Earlier I think a few of you said cockerel. I'm hoping one of them is going to be named Marion but I fear if one is a cockerel they all are as they are pretty much of a muchness...

    and again a BR...


    hope you all can help me as I have to re-home the boys...

    The #1 golden is definately a roo as it is developing saddle feathers. The barreds look male to me as well and I can't tell about the #2 golden, the pic isn't good enough. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    Number 1 & 2 are the same bird - I know the other glw is a boy. That means out of 12 birds we got four hens. Bad word goes here. I'm not even going to show pictures of the ones I'm sure are hens (or ru's), I just couldn't tell with the glw one and the barred rocks. Maybe I'll get Ron to hold each one so I'm sure I have a pic of every one. It's hard to take pics with the digital as it seems to click just as they move unlike my real camera...

    oh well.
