The third one ( is it a tuxedo?!?), can you visually sex them ( how), and if so, is it a girl or a boy? Thank youuu! 14966371045771192850321.jpg 14966371045771192850321.jpg

    Tuxedos cannot be visually sexed so you'll have to wait for it to crow or give you an egg.

    You can not visually sex the tibetan, Texas A&M or the tuxedo (which is a cross between tibetan and A&M). Your 2 pharaoh are hens but you will either have to vent sex the tuxedo or wait and see if it crows.

    the Italians are more of a blond color with black and brown spots. 17457980_218909318589140_620693499201436406_n.jpg
    The one closest to the camera is a pharoah the 3 in the back are Italians.
