    Well, it's taken me a bit to get back on since the switch...and I'm still trying to figure things out.
    Here's the update on the Bantam brood...now in their 8th week...
    All 8 are doing well...
    We do have 2 roos among the OEG Bantams and 4 hens... I must say, this is our first experience with roos, and nothing makes me happier than listening to them learn to crow. Funniest. Sound. Ever.
    We have 1 porcelain d'uccle and 1 mille fleur d'uccle...
    Not sure if you can tell sex on them yet, but they are beautiful...
    Attaching pics, let me know if anyone can tell what they Are! Plus some bonus pics of some of the OEG Bantams. 20170524_175959.jpg 20170524_175911.jpg 20170524_175855.jpg 20170524_175840.jpg 20170524_175823.jpg 20170524_175808.jpg 20170524_175732.jpg 20170524_175620.jpg 20170524_175503.jpg 20170524_175959.jpg 20170524_175911.jpg 20170524_175855.jpg 20170524_175840.jpg 20170524_175823.jpg 20170524_175808.jpg 20170524_175732.jpg 20170524_175620.jpg 20170524_175503.jpg

    I would say light colored d'uccle is a hen and other is a roo

    I think your beareded white one (d'uccle?) is a hen, and your black and orange one (d'uccle?) is a roo.

    The Porcelain d'Uccle is a pullet and the Millie Fleur d'Uccle looks like a cockerel. I once had a cockerel who sounded like a broken squeaky toy :lau.

    That's the perfect explanation! Should call him Sqeaker...Or maybe Cronk from Emperors New Grove...lol
    I was thinking the Mille Fleur was a too too...

    Pretty birds. I agree the Millie is a boy and the porcelain is a girl.

    Gotta love the funny crowing.
