HI everyone, I am sorry I have looked at those sexing pics and I just can't be sure, it was at first thought that 'she' was a girl but then it was questioned and now we just don't know, 'she' is 6 weeks old, any help is appreciated thanks : )

sorry for the blurriness Anxious

My wife says it is a girl, BUT I agree with Wyndara. Looks like a cock bird going by the head shape. The better half Rolling Eyes thinks the gap between the edge of the beak and the eyes indicates a hen.

Thank you... actually the funny thing is that he seems to have shot up over night or something because today when I look at him, compared to my female, it is quite obvious he is a he!
Thanks everyone Laughing
