    Oh no!! Of my 6 peeps - 3, maybe 4 are supposed to be OEGBs, and I have been so happy because they all appear [to my inexperienced eye] to be pullets. Then I went to the breeds chart and looked at the pictures of the adolescents. They look just like mine and they are all listed as male! What's a mother to do? I can't have roos!

    A mother must post pictures (on the other board maybe) so someone who has OEG can confirm whether they are pullets or cockrels.

    Well, I guess this mother will have to get off her duff and find a photo program that will let her edit size and save in jpeg format! My Serif poto pluss saves edited pics in a format that can only be read by Serif [​IMG] 'Course, you will be opening a barn door -- I have LOTS of pictures! You would think these peeps were my firstborn grandchild! [​IMG]

    I just read the photo instructions on the Breed/Gender section and haven't the capability at this time so will ost there when I can get decent pictures. I did manage to go 'around the world' and get one picture downsized, tho' I have no way to crop:( The 4 chicks in question are in front, tho' the tiny one is hiding behind, in frot of the Cochin on the left. Any ideas?
