    Here are two of my three - hoping for girls. [​IMG]
    Any thoughts out there?

    Look closely at the right leg - are these spurs? Do spurs matter?

    Looks like two girls. Hens/pullets can have spurs too. If they have round hackle (neck) and saddle (lower back) feathers they are female. Pointed feathers in these areas mean male.
