Never having had Ancona's not sure if I am right with the sexing but ...suspect two girls and one boy.

Some comb development on the reddish brown black and grey chick and slightly more assertive behaviour suggests boy to me.

Not sure if the predominantly grey and white chick is even an Ancona as legs are also grey (?) Same breeder same hatch.

Keen to have breeder tips :)

Thanks Caladenia..will post more pics when I get home. I am watching leg and feathering development closely also and the one with more red appears to also have slightly thicker legs. Or maybe I am imagining it..
