    I think I have read a kazillion postings but still don't have a definitive if my 8 week olds are boys or girls or both.
    Here is the equation:
    Dad is a 'many breeds' bantam with yellow legs and NO waddle nor comb.
    Mom is also mixed breed bantam with slate legs and WITH small waddle and comb.
    Three babes all appear to have equal feather shape and coloring as each other. More like dad than mom. Two babes have yellow legs like dad. One has slate legs like mom. All three have started waddles and combs like mom.
    I will try to get better photos than I have but wanted to ask the question first. The leg color seems like it is a statement but then the combs throw that off....
    Guesses please?
    Ohya, they are ALL three rambunctious and curious and natural born leaders.
    Thanks for your comments.
