    Probably a girl. My little roos were clearly roos at 4 months. Congrats on a pretty one.

    I dint' know about that. You mean if there is a big daddy the others won't mature as quickly?

    How's that for black? I'm wondering how he/she will look as an adult!

    Looking awsome. Thats the color I'm trying to get. I really like the black with white spots.

    That could be that his maturity is stalled. I had an Olandsk Dwarf that did that. Heres some pics of him and his hatchmates at the same age.

    just a quick question....are you sure that is a pure Swede? I only ask because of the leg color....so far all I read from SWEDEN is hat their flocks over there all have yellow legs! If it is pure bred I need to make a not of that, anyone else have Swedes with this leg color, please let me know so I can make a point!! Thanks Justin

    I think Bulldogma can answer the question about the leg color. She made a comment on that earlier in this thread so I'll defer to her on that.
