    Can you post pictures of them. You may need a few more posts here in the forum to do that. It is easy to to do. Just pop in and welcome some new members to the board.

    I know that we can help you here. But it's much more easy and accurate if we can see what your chickens look like.

    PS Welcome to BYC from the soggy gray skies of Western Washington State.

    Not sure a picture will help was hoping for some one who has experence with them. I cannot contact the person I got them from in Australia, they claimed to wait till 12 week because they are the one of the hardest breeds to sex just by look at them. Then I forgot to ask or forgot what they said -what do I look for when its time. Cheers
