    You turn it over, if there is a B on thier belly its a BOY, if there is a G it is a girl. [​IMG]

    Actually they will tell you, if it does a two sylable call(sounds like buck-wheat) it is a girl, if it only does a single sound it is a boy.

    I have heard a few males have real hen parties in their own right.

    Quote:Poor lonely guy... well, you can come get her. She's loud, but actually lets me touch her, and the coloring is pretty. Looks like she has hair sticking out her head. It's been interesting [​IMG] Her 5 friends left her behind. I didn't realize they needed to have a limited run until they got familiar with the joint, so off they flew>>>>
    Thus "Guinea Girl" remains.
