    He's got a great crest on him, doesn't he? Too cute! It's such a shame the boys can't seem to get along so we could keep more of them! [​IMG]

    When I raise them together like these all these boys are they seem to get along pretty good. When they get older and you split them up, well forget it then lol....

    Well with partri the males seem to get more coloring and the girls have more penciling in the wings and I go by crest also.
    Males seem to be wild like and the girls are more roundish. BUT I have been wrong lol...

    Quote:I agree...the cockerels have more "wispy" pieces to their crest whereas the pullets are rounded puffballs!
