    Gosh, at least I guessed the breed right! [​IMG] I missed the fact you wrote that! [​IMG]

    I would say that first one is a cockerel and the 2nd one is a pullet.

    They are both cockerels. And not pure BCM, but crosses. Pure BCM's don't get the red in the wing area.

    Yup, definitely both boys.

    Ya know, I always forget to look where people are from before responding. You got through to me with "bloody" though. (my family is Australian, so I'm used to hearing it [​IMG]) I still don't think they are pure marans with the red leakage in the wing area.
