    I *think* I have a pair here, BUT they are the exact same size. One has wattles, the other does not. What do you think?
    Girl?

    Boy? Or does the wattle thing not apply?

    I'm thinking about selling them since I don't plan to raise them- but if I have 2 girls I will just keep them for broodies.

    My showgirl pair were close to the same size. I think you are right, top-girl, bottom pic-boy.

    Do you have some with wattles and some without or is that a gender-specific thing with the showgirls? Thanks!​
