    I won't be actually taking them home for another month, so hopefully it will be completely obvious by then, but since I'm already getting fond of them (they are at a client's home) I hope they both turn out to be hens!!!

    This is Bianca. She is a Brahma X (hence the leg feathers). Client says she is a little bigger than some of the others so that might be a bad sign? I.e., might be a rooster?

    And this is Audrey:

    Any opinions on gender? Thanks!

    Oh, and if no one can be sure, please tell me what I need to be looking for as they mature that will designate them as male or female. Thanks!

    Oh YAY!!! Fingers crossed that you guys are right!

    Not sure about Audrey. I'll ask, but she may not be 100% sure. The person just raises them for herself mostly and they free-range when old enough. So they interbreed pretty much as they please. There are 2 roosters.

    Quote:I asked, and her mom is an Australorp. Dad is either RIR or Arucana (probably the latter as she is on the smaller side). [​IMG]
