Thanks Chicka-Dee I was hoping at least 2 were pullets so to get 3 will be a bonus :)

Yep I concur :-D

You know something that I also noticed was that your lavender chick also has a very similar beak to the boys I've had in the past.

I've noticed that with all my breeds of chickens that the girls seem to have a larger overhang than the boys & the boys seem to have a thicker bottom beak.

I really don't know if this is a proven theory but I have definitely noticed this trait before between boys & girls.

Something to look for in the future [smilie=a_chuckle.gif]

Cheers
Chicka-Dee
