    Hi all... I was given these babies and they were supposedly hatched on 8/17, though one of them has always looked a bit behind developmentally. I read things about beak horns and leg size, and not to rely on the crests for a good long time, but I can't make sense of any of these! Anyone out there that can help?

    The pics aren't great, but here they are in groups of head and body shot per bird...

    I'm not seeing any obvious rooster signs in any of them. However, if any were to be cockerels, I would guess #1 would be, based off the crest.

    It is too young to tell their gender accurately, but none are showing obvious rooster signs yet. I would post new photos when they are 8 weeks old; by then, the gender should be more obvious.

    /nod.... thank you all! I will send more pics at 8 weeks. I was looking for any waddles starting, but didn't see any yet.

    I cannot wait until my SLP goes through this phase. I love it! They are so cute! Here's my 8 day old baby, Spork. [​IMG]
