    Will try and get a pic but they're so flighty...as for sexing....I was reading somewhere that the males are bigger...
    I have got two that are bigger and their little top feathering also bigger. ...I may be proven wrong but hopefully a good ratio if im right..

    Pictures are perfect... Thank you!! I'll try to take some of my babies to see if I could get an idea of what gender they are... I bought 4 2week old babies and I ended up with 3 boys and 1 hen :he
