Hi all,

I have hatched these from some fertile eggs, Anconas, Silver Sussex and Plymouth Rocks. They are 10 weeks old at the moment. I know the sex of the Anconas but am unsure about the Plymouth Rocks or the Silver Sussex.

What do you think they are - girls or boys?

The photos are really not clear enough, but just on the redness of the face and wattles I think the rock on the right looks male, the other too hard to see. The first sussex looks male. The group shots are too confusing though I can see a couple that definitely look like boys.

Sorry the photos aren't better, I found it hard photographing young birds full of energy - they always seem to run as the shutter goes off!

Thanks for your help I will just have to wait for them to either crow or not. :thumbs:
