    Does anyone want to take a shot at sexing these four based on head dots, just for kicks? Eight days old here. I had 11 but gave some away to a student who didn't care if they were roos or not. Came from Cackle as SR.

    I am guessing all four are female. I am looking at wing flight feathers and feet as well. I have raised doms from Cackle and sexing them based on coloration pretty reliable.

    yep!!! our friends say we have a bird dog that wont hunt quail and a cow dog that wont wrangle cows, lol
    BUT our gsp will hunt! no doubt!!! i trained him we just dont have natural birds around here to go hunt, but i have let 150 bobs go on our family dairy and there are still 2 covies there! yay! so just because they think he wont hunt doesnt mean he wont!!! i kno better....i love gsp this is my first and i never dreamed of a dog being so wonderful and smart, he blows me away, and he has such a personality!!! def wont be my last [​IMG] cant live without them im addicted to gsp's!!!!!
    but we do hv a red heeler, pound pup rescue and he is pure heeler, but has been scowled around cows so no he wont work but he is an awesome companion for gsp! main thing is we saved his life!
