    Hiya.
    I want to buy these two wee pekins but my googling tells me the black one might be a boy? The seller doesn't know but I've already sent 3 roosters to a friend of mine and she doesn't want anymore so I need to be sure they are girls [​IMG].
    The lighter one is a buff Colombian Pekin, the black one is crossed with a Silkie rooster.
    Please experts, could you tell me for sure what sex these wee ones are?
