    When you have Wheaten or Blue Wheaten parents, the thing to look for in sexing is that the females will be pure brown or pale tan in color, the males will be mostly blue or black with red.

    Ok, so my feelings are in line with others... I was thinking that the blue was a roo, dark one was a roo and the other two pullets...[​IMG]
