these are my first bubs, there are 3 about 12 weeks old, and 2 are about 8 weeks old.

of the larger 3, 2 have hair'dos, one doesnt :? i think the hair'do'ed older pair are males... :hmmm:

and the smaller 2, 1 has a hair'do, and the other doesnt... :roll: :lol: i think these are both hens though?

if you can manage to see them in the pics, and give me your thoughts, it would be most appreciated!

thanks HBG
:D

3 older ones and a young one behind, and no, he isnt crowing, just gazing at camera funny :lol:

I agree with your sexing as far as I can see, Yvonne! You have some major 'do's' on some of them :lol: I can't really see the youngsters well though.
