    What sweetie pies.

    Do you care to speculate on genders? Or, do you just want to pick "gender neutral" names?

    Based on my extremely limited experience with the 3 that I hatched in May, it appears to me that you have one definite female, the one on the left in photo #2, and one that could be either, but may well turn out to be a male.

    I had 2 that I believed to be females, looked exactly alike with dark bills when hatched. "Rose" and "Constance" (hard to come up with good Pilgrim names for females, there weren't all that many women on the Mayflower and most of them seemed to have been named Mary!).

    "Constance" is all white fuzzy now, looks just like #3, "Jack" so "Constance" is now "William".

    I hope they are male and female too! If not, I will be in trouble too! I went by the color of the fluff and the bill. Females should have a darker bill and fluff coloration.
