    Always equal males?

    Getting a bit discouraged with our 10 hatchlings. Looks like only 2 will be hens [​IMG]

    Any bird with the black feathering can have the beetle green sheen on the feathers.

    These two 14 week olds are my questionable birds. I gave away a brother of theirs two weeks ago when he started learning to crow.

    The one in the front is definitaly a rooster. I can't see the one in the back very good but if it has the green tail like the one in the front, its most likely a rooster too.

    Thanks... I was guessing this way. So far no roo behaviour. The one in front is rather timid too.

    Ditto, the one in the front is a roo, can't see the one in the back very well.
