    I know I have at least 2 cockerels. So I won't put a pic of them.

    I also know I have at least 1 pullet (I am showing her though).

    But that leaves 2 so here is where I need your help.

    here is #1:
    full body shot:

    lol my dog is in a few of them, he thinks he is keeping the chickens in their yard (he's a Border Collie)

    I'm sure I will find something to edit in or out lol (besides this)

    The black one (middle one) has a few suspicious looking feathers in her (?) tail that are not in the pics I was going to take a pic of them but I forgot.

    beautiful blue sumatras, is 2 a black sumatra ?
    #1 and #3 are females
    #2 looks like it could be a boy, by the shape of his neck feathers, thats how i picked my sumatras out. [​IMG]
