    I'm almost sure I have a roo or two although I haven't seen the mom just the dad, the dad was quite golden with just a bit of black and not overly abundant crown.

    They still have the pin feathers all over even their hed feathers haven't all came through. The tail feathers are all rounded if that matters, the father was more golden and quite a show stopper.

    The chicks are now almost crowing:) the 2 on the right were roosters even though they kept me guessing, having mites cause horrible feathers didn't help. They are now healthy large cockerals that are going to be leaving me tomorrow. They are great roosters but as I have someone on my block who doesn't like them I needed to rehome them. I still have baby girl, she's 100% girl though I wish she was more outgoing like the boys, she likes to sit back and wait for me to say hi, the boy always came up to me. Today the chicks were actually getting along with the older girls even drinking at the same time, hopefully baby girl will blend in well without her brothers.
