    fighting doesn't guarantee boys, some girls have quite a personality. Boys do tend to do it more. Can't really say without pictures, so i can try to help more with some of those. :) How old are they?

    Also, is the beautiful rooster in your avatar yours? I had a bird that looks just like it, but i never knew what he was. He was my favorite. Might i ask what breed that is?

    Ok. I think you've got genders right, definitely right for the boys.

    the rooster in the profile pic is pure red jungle fowl as far as i know the pure ones are only in indochina you most likely had a cross with oeg like i do they look and behave somewhat differently from a "regular" chicken but for all intents and purposes they are normal chickens
    they are my favorite as well:)

    You're welcome! I'm questioning a couple 'pullets' but not enough to say cockerel yet. You might want to post standing profile pictures in a week or two to confirm them. [​IMG]
