    The "red things" are wattles, and both males and females have them. Your birds are about 3 months old... Could you post some pictures? Sometimes it's easier to tell if we can see the hackle (neck) and saddle (base of tail) feathers as well as the combs and wattles. [​IMG]

    (Oh yeah, get 5 more posts -- lots go to the new member section and welcome folks -- and then you can post pictures. [​IMG])

    I'd love to but I'm tech impaired. I took some pics but no idea how to get them from camera to site.[​IMG]

    Thanks for all the support. I think I've got 4 boys and 2 girls (2 vanished) if I'm understanding thing. I've gotten the pics into the computer now to getthem uploaded I've tried some of the methods suggested, must be doing something wrong. I'll keep working on it. Good thing I'm better with animals than technology [​IMG]
