    Your Pekin is definitely a boy. The Sumatra.. So far a girl. I'd wait on the Sumatra for a while though. She could surprise you. However, no surprises with your Pekin. 100% a boy. He is blue I believe.

    Thanks! that is very helpful-we were 99% sure on the pekin but as we don't have any others of the same breed, we wanted to check....just in case[​IMG]
    Any other info on sexing the sumatra would be great..like what to look out for in particular? both bantams by the way if any different...
