    Subject says it all.

    These are two White Arucana babies.

    This is Moon - s/he is rumpless with no tufts:

    An older pic - about 4 weeks old here:

    And this is Star, also an Arucana, but s/he has a tail and no tufts...

    Scuse the little bit of blood - she got a boo-boo somehow.

    THANKS in advance for your guesses!

    I would say both girls, but let someone with more experience be the judge! Good luck!

    I have not had any experience with this breed, but by judging the size of their combs, I'd say pullets! [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] I want everyone to say that they're girls!

    The first one was a HUGE baby - and HUGE fat legs, so I was really thinking boy at first, but as they've all grown - the others have caught up and in size and legs they're all about the same now.....

    How lucky would I be to have 4 girls out of 4 that hatched!!!!???? [​IMG]

    My other two I think are girls as well.... NO comb or Wattle development at ALL.
