    I am very disappointed in the hathery this year.. yes, I know sexing is only an art and not a science but 8 out of 20 is really bad art!!

    I have two lt. brahmas that look exactly like this.. are these boys?

    And I have a male lt brahma (we ordered 1 roo and this one is it) that has a single comb.. isn't that a fault?

    Here they are girl and boy side by side to compare.. [​IMG].. yes, I know it is a dumb boy.. pass a hanky please [​IMG] )

    And the two most beautiful EE's are turning out to be boys too I think?

    Not a great pic.. but here is the girl to compare to:

    I am so sad and upset by all this wasted time and energy to wind up with so many roos...and so few hens

    There are just 5 weeks old.
