    Well, we should not assume. I do think you are right on your guesses, I can see some differences now that you pointed them out. Thanks again, and I will send in some more in a few weeks. I enjoy looking at these pictures and reading your guesses. Your sweet and kind, even if you are a guy.[​IMG] Ha Ha. Yes, the whole thing with Megan ending up getting silkies was amazing. I am wondering now though if the mystery bantam is a rooster too.
