    Quote:The older ones look like you have pegged. As for the younger ones, way too early to tell.

    Its a Boy!!! My BF woke me up at 5 am this morning saying he heard a weird noise outside, kind of like a woman screaming. I hopped out of bed and ran barefoot to the coop. Well sure enough these were Bubba's first crowing attempts. I sure hope he gets to his rooster business soon so I can hatch some of his babies before I have to find him a new home.

    Thanks for all the input everyone! 20 weeks and we finally have our answer :)

    It's been a few weeks since I posted Winnie and Doodle. Everyone still guessing both pullets?

    Good idea, thanks! I got a potential BYC taker, it looks like, so Albert is going to have a good home to go to.

    I think they both look like pullets, but I'm incredibly new to this. Though, I am wondering how you keep your hanging waterer from spilling? I have the same kind and the chickens are constantly tipping it to one side or the other.

    He sure had me going! What a small comb for a boy @ 20 weeks! At least his double barring makes sense now though!
