  1. Sorry i have no pics yet, however ive been invited to have a look at a fellows flock of juveniles and I am wondering what to look for in pullets and cockerals to determine gender.
    Im looking for 2 hens as I need more eating eggs!!
    any hints would be really appreciated.

    males' combs and tails normally mature faster than females and get longer, males are normally brighter in color than hens, and males have spurs. hens are dull and boring. I think i'm a little late on the reply, aren't I ?
