    I 75% sure these two are males, but i've had surprises these days.They are pretty much look alike and do seem pretty active.[​IMG]

    Did you post these on the "Easter eggedr sexing tips and tricks" thread? They've got a lot of experts on the who can answer that, but to me they both look like males

    I did not, Thank you! :) I checked their wattles this morning again, and I think the top two are males. Still not sure on my other one.

    If the hen was barred, then you have known from hatch that those two are males. A barred hen can only pass her barring gene to her male chicks.
