these 3 are bugging me now,i think it may be 2 females one male but theres so many differing ways of sexing them on the net
some say by wattles,some say wait for the crowing! some say by spurs and others by the fluffy hair do
so thought id ask here,bit of a long shot!

Its a nightmare, the only way I was able to determine was by the dominant nature. We had 4 Hens and a Cockeral, didn't have a clue untill he started kicking them about. When they run out of their house in the morning, see if one of them stamps their feet near the others, if any do its a boy!

Its difficult full stop, after the first time we decided to get them 'at point of lay' they cost a little more but at least you know what your getting otherwise you can end up with a load of Cockerals no hens which means no eggs! lol
