    I believe I DEFINITELY have 3 boys out of my 12 babies!

    I knew I had at least one boy about a week ago -- Starsky.

    Then a couple days later I noticed that a second one was definitely a boy -- Hutch!

    Now I'm thinking there's a 3rd one. Its comb is dark pink just like Starsky and Hutch!

    Here are some pictures :)

    I think they are too cute for words :)

    I'm having my first go with bantys this year, brought 3 home...the smallest is like a hummingbird but takes no prisoners! Oh I hope they aren't roos! I'm calling the little one Lola, from the rock song by the Kinks

    I would say you are right. And I wouldn't bet against the one right at the back in pic 2 being a cockerel either.

    I agree...the one all the way in the back of the pack looks like a roo too! The way the head is up in the air to get a lay of the land....girls usually stay lower...my boys always seemed to have a scraggley appearance to their neck feathers when they were little too!!! uh oh! good luck.
