    They are really too young to tell - I do kinda suspect the second one as a roo in the making. The first one I don't want to even guess about. The showgirl - I can't see the comb, prefer a front view. But even so it's very difficult to sex them before 4-5 mos. and sometimes not till they crow or lay. So guesses(and they are just guesses) at this early time are not written in stone. Your showgirl is cute as a button.

    Thank you. The Showgirls have grown on me. Originally I didn't like any naked neck breeds, but man! Those showgirls are cute as day olds!
