    I need to know there low temps, How aggressive are they during mating are they spring breeders or all year.

    I just picked up two more couple days ago. the two new ones are supposed to be hens [​IMG], and if this is the case then judging by appearance I have four hens [​IMG]

    The first two are supposed to be 4 to 5 months old. I would assume these new ones are close to that as well.

    Males tend to have larger eye seres. Looks like you may have 2 hens. It's been a while (15years) since I had any so I may not be correct.
