    Hey, how are they? Did they all three end up girls? They will need some hair cutting so they can see. They are only pet quality but their head puffs are good enough to get in the way. Post some pics if you can, it would be interesting to see how they turned out!

    Oh no! TWO!

    I had 6 total and my three all were boys! I was hoping you got all the girls then since you are in the city. All three of my boys already crowed. Have your two suspects crowed yet?

    Let me know if they really are roos once you know for sure. Sounds like a bad girl boy ratio there from that hatch.
