Seems there is much debate over sexes of these Juvenal birds, I'm new to the form and have been reading these posts for a couple of months now. The jury is still out for me on my 8 week old JBG's! I'm going to post some pics to see if we can get an educated debate going again! Lol! Would love to hear people's comments and opinions! BTW I love my JBG's they are super smart and super friendly!

They haven't started laying yet but they have obviously taken to the nesting boxes! Lol. I stuck a couple duck eggs in there in hopes to encourage them

Pick them up by the skin of their neck. Just like a cat does to her kittens. When you pick them up if their legs fold up they are roosters. If they hang down their hens. Sounds crazy but it works.

I heard the opposite. If the legs crunch up to their tummy they are hens and if they hang even one down they are roos.. ?? who knows.. ?
