    These birds are about two months maybe a little more. The blue partridge is a week younger than the other two.
    The white I think is a hen. I know it's neck is a little long and it is not compact enough. The blue acts like a cockeral. I couldn't get its crest very clean and it has so many new feathers coming in. This bird is going to be heavily feathered. Everywhere I looked I saw new feathers coming in. I think the crest is too small. I hope it gets larger.
    The third the bp I think is a hen. I hope it is because it thinks I am mommy. It kept flying up onto my lap when I was trying to take pics. I wish it had more red in it. It has really pretty slate grey feathers.
    So tell me what u think please. Thanks

    The white looks like a pullet and the other two look like cockerels.
