    eggs were labeled as mixed pure breeds,

    Lucario and Oddish, (everyone was pretty sure Lucario is barred rock roo [​IMG] but not sure about Oddish)

    Lucario and Oddish are certainly boys. The coloring on Shinx is making me think male as well, but the comb still looks female.

    Quote:Oh no, I thought so... would they get on okay if they have been raised together since hatching? And are they more likely to crow if there's the two of them?

    Quote:ah I hope not, she's/he's the calmest... ):

    Thank you though ^^

    If they are raised together they should be fine. One will be dominant and 2nd ranking rooster will know his place. Both will crow when they feel like it whether there's 2 of them there or not.
