    OK I am new to this site so I will try and get it right the first time .. if not [​IMG]

    These are the two in question .. I am pretty sure my SS is male as I have seen and heard him TRYING really really hard to cock~a~doodle~doo but it sounds like me thinking I can sing in the shower ... or anywhere else [​IMG]
    anyhow ... thanks if these two FEMALES are in fact Males I will post the others to be sure [​IMG] Just taken 10 mins ago .. I believe they are suppose to be 12 weeks old but hey they are all females too
