    They're both girls. They look exactly like my Perdita did. They have round ball head feathers. No pointy stringy feathers over the tail or on the neck.

    Nothing like the two males I had. They had Spiked Elvis hair, sort of slicked back. Stringy pointy-ended neck and tail feathers. Taller stance, more assertive.

    Quote:I agree, I am sure they are both girls, I just wanted to confirm it, as they both have no pointy feathers, all feathers are rounded,

    I have a few other older polish cockerals which had the swept back hairdo at there age, and these 2 do not resemble any of these..

    And they a far to nice natured to be males, [​IMG]
