I was hoping for the former, am fearing its the latter. Half siblings - black & white one's father is a SL Polish-EEx and mother is a PB Appenzeller Spitzhauben, both of the solid black one's parents are SL Polish-EE x , 10 wks old.
What about the black one? I've been looking at the feathers around the base of its tail where the saddle feathers would come in and they aren't pointed but they aren't fat rounded ones either. Tell me that one's a pullet. And I'm pretty sure the brown & white one in the middle (last photo) is a pullet (another half-sibling)
