    they look like males. sorry but they do. it took about that long for my rouen to get green on his head and the grey feathers on their body.but yes they look like males to me.

    I see one tail curl. Does the other one have a tail curl? If yes, both boys.

    My boys (not a very good pic) The two in the front, and the one in the middle, behind the pekin. The girl is to the right, by the other pekin.

    Good luck finding some!! I have tried. I know Quail_Antwerp will have some this spring, but I haven't seen her on here in forever, so not sure what's going on with that. If they were femal, they would have no grey on them whatsoever, and they would have that brown striping all over their bodies. If I find anyone with eggs, I'll let you know. Please do the same for me!! My poor boys will be hard up this spring when I seperate them! [​IMG]

    Well I got these babies as eggs. I bought them from ebay from a gal from Minnesota. I ordered 2x from her and I think these two were the only thing that hatched [​IMG] Wasn't impressed, but I do like these two crazy "boys"
    Maybe egg bid? Hmmm...I will find them...I will find them....
    Hugs Shelley, (are your bators full yet?)
