twitch, sorry you didn't get a possible gender update a month ago. How are they going now? Do you have more recent photos?

My guess would have been the black was a girl, but I'm not good at Plymouths and would have got them entirely wrong :)

Possibly from around week 24, but as coming into winter they may not start until early spring when the wheather starts to warm up.

Your Australorp is likely to be the first to lay when the days start to get longer. Rocks can be 'late bloomers.
