    Yeah, it just helps keep spammers from posting. Just reply to this, go post a few times elsewhere--introductions, things like that, and they you should be able to pop pictures up.

    I think you can post photos before the ten post if you use image tags and a photo hosting site.

    Maybe I can show YOU some picture that will help you out.





    Cockerel is looking at camera. Pullet is sleeping. Age approx 3-4 weeks (I cant remember)
    [​IMG]


    Cockerel about 6 weeks
    [​IMG]





    Here you can tell a difference. The cockerel has bigger comb and wattles than the pullet next to him
    [​IMG]



    In this photo you can see 2 week old (Approx age) starting to develop more comb than the pullet next to him
    [​IMG]




    At five months you can definitely see the difference in sexes.

    Hope this helps!
