Here are photos of my bantam light-barred Plymouth Rocks. They are both 7 months old and I still can't tell if they're male or female 100% :roll: . Any help would be appreciated.

Bugger, I was hoping they were female! Any idea what price I should try to sell them for or anyone who would be interested in buying them off me?

Yep they both look like males for sure. I would grow them on and then sell them or keep the best one, you don't see many of these fella's around should fetch a good price at an auction.

I agree, grow the boys out a bit more and sell them at a purebred auction. You may be surprised what you get for them.

Hi,

they are both very light, they would be a handy addition to any light bar breeding program, see how they develop, and put photos up when fully grown, where are you situated?
