    Hi I could really use your help [​IMG] This is Miley and Lily (we hope) PLEASE help us figure out our hardest 2 to sex yet... They are RIR's at 12 weeks old. They are sweet docile and eat out of hands. Miley seemed to be the "runt" of our chicks ex: slowest to grow, last to feather in etc. Each one belongs to each of my daughters and are very special to them. Thank you for your help! We've been driving ourselves nuts with these 2 girls "gulp" I'd really appreciate your opinions [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thank you! Miley's been our little one and my 7year old daughter adores her. Lately, she's been hanging out on the coop run door/ramp almost calling the girls in at night and she would enter the coop after the rest. STRESSED at the recent behavior. She is the lowest on the pecking order was looking like roo behavior but what do I know [​IMG] Lily hangs out with her most of the day. Thank you again!
