    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.


    I'm not good at guessing - but they look like roos to me?

    I used to have pics of mine at various ages to compare and make better guesses, but lost those in a computer crash :(

    Basing my guess on no black pigment on the feet.

    It is best to try to get a whole profile pic and post under "what breed, what gender" forum to get experienced opinions.

    They look like roos. Gray barring rather than crisp black (female), wide white areas and yellow legs.
