    I think I know what they are but I want other people opinions. They are just over 4 months old now. Sorry the pictures are so bad.

    I am sure this is a boy. He has already made a sad attempt at crowing. What color is he considered though?

    I'm sorry. I used the wrong code. I fixed it I think.

    I can only see the first one clearly, he looks like a buff/black mix. The other pictures aren't clear, I'd say they're blacks though. Either way, nice looking birds.

    I think you're pretty close with your guesses. Males usually have a slicked back look with their crests and the females' are rounded and cute.
