    Finally! a few shots of my ronquieres.
    still trying to determine the sex of them, i think its 2 toms 4 hens based on size difference and snood length but you cant really see that in the pics sadly.

    does anyone know what the colour would be? i have 4 darker with lots of brown, and 2 with a lot of white? (sorry the whiter ones didnt want to show their faces!)

    Looks to me like two of the darker birds are jakes (young males) and two are hens. The white one is a hen, at least in the first pic. At this age the males will soon begin strutting for the ladies, and with spring not far off, gobbling will begin too. Nice birds, I like the color of the darker ones. Looks like they have slate and a red gene. At first I thought you developed a new bird, a moscovy/turkey hybrid! [​IMG]
