    I am so bad at this... 1,3,6 are cockerels thats my best guess. Can you see who has the extra streamer feathers on the crests yet? who are the bigger ones? often comparing them in size helps.

    eta 1 and 3 for sure, possibly #2 and I change my mind about #6 I now think it is a she lol can you get side shots of some that only have head on pics?

    Quote:#6 looks more like a female. only because of how small it is. Although I have had some pretty looking boys at that age [​IMG]

    Dan is a girl... You will have to rename her Danielle

    just look at the face... The crest is different. Plus I can see wattles on it

    But pictures can only say so many things.
