    i didn't think I would be able to tell the difference for another 6 months but one ouf our little guys (I'm guessing) who is just now 3 weeks was dancing for one of the other poults. It was the funniest thing to watch seeing as it didn't have many feathers to strut. Can it be a boy or do both sexs do that? Crystal

    It's probably a male doing it. Mine are 7 weeks old, and I have the dominate one already strutting and was trying to bump his mother, of all people, today. I have two males, and they were fighting like little boys a couple of days ago--one would latch on to the other, I'd break them up, then the one being bit would jump on the one who bit him. It's was pretty funny. [​IMG]
