    Ok I've posted before on a couple of these but thought I'd try again now that they are older-- they are 5 weeks. Let me know what you think -- and thanks in advance for your help!

    1) Cricket SLW -- this is questionable to be because it looks like the comb is getting a pinkish color?

    2) Nugget --Any guesses on breed or gender or guesses to what color-- obviously bantam. Has a very upright tail. Getting some pink looking wattles?

    3) Che -- Golden Campine - no color in the comb but very slow-feathering also a bit of a spaz!

    4)Frida --EE x Silkie -- I am sure there is no hope with this one since these are two tough breeds to tell gender early on -- but I thought it was worth a shot. If it's worth anything -- all this chick wants to do is chest bump -- especially my one very obvious cockerel.

    5) Little Jerry --Cochin Frizzle -- hmmmm I wonder?? duh -- just threw this in since he is so obvious!! Gotta love 'em -- he is so proud!

    Again, Thank you for your help! [​IMG]

    Anyone one else want to weigh in on these -- pretty please! I need to add to this group if I have more than one roo and there is a local lady selling some the same age -- just need to know if I have an excuse to go get more. Thanks for your help!

    I usually get a good idea by who has the brighter wattle skin and who's redest, some of them are pretty red.[​IMG]
