    Thanks guys,- just like reesepoultry's chicks.

    So out of 5 opals I have what looks like 4 boys [​IMG]

    At least I didn't get them shipped in.

    They are beautiful. Even more so in real life.

    Sorry. Sometimes it seems there's so much more of one sex one year and it swings other way next..

    Yep they are very beautiful!
