    Hey all! Hope you can assist. Two from same clutch and not sure on gender - first time parent here!

    We are thinking the one further away in the picture is a male due to the more apparent barring. The last picture is him (or her) on its own. This one does seem to be a bit bigger but it's not a huge difference. They are about 3.5months old. Appreciate your opinions!

    Crop and repost the pics. When I expand them they get real fuzzy. Kinda looks like two hens but not sure.

    Looks like a boy and a girl, but as KsKingBee said, bigger, better cropped pics would help.

    That was most informative and I was able to correctly identify 2 females out of 4 I have, the other two being whites and I'm lost although one is getting a tan head so I'm thinking that's a male perhaps and will need to go if theres a chance in the future he will fight with my 6 yr blue ?
