Hi guys,
was just out watching my little chicks looking at a few and hoping they would be girls (good markings/crest etc). Anyway i noticed a couple had wattles already. Just want confirmation that this little one is a boy as i was thinking it would be alot harder to sex them than this. If it is a boy, i am heading straight back ot there to have a closer look at them all :D

look at the wattle at 3 weeks (pretty cool hairdo as well 8) )

Have you seen that Tooheys advert where the bloke grows a hair and they into mounds containing people, They all look a bit like the boy in your photo.

a good way to tell with polish especially is teh roundedness or pointedness of the feathers in the crest.

if teh feathers end wit a round shape, it is a girl..........pointed shape is a boy.

hard to tell from teh photo, but those feathers look round :?

Yeah, there are a few that are bigger than the others and have the wattles. cant see them on some so i am assuming they are girls. Will take a shot of another one in the morning for comparison.

8) Very cool hairdo - I was actually thinking - wow :shock: that is ugly... but like cabbage patch kids - ugly but that makes them cute!! :P

But then again I think Malay games are gorgeous - so that will give you a measure of my taste! :lol:

He is very nice though :!:

:D
Everytime I see malay games my mind see vultures swarming around.

Vultures in the air circling arounds means your still crawling towards the oasis and you have a chance. Vultures on the ground means its all about over :D

I think the people who developed them had very Hitchcock minds.
