I have no idea, but they are very lovely babies. Are they your hatchlings?

My guess - male, male, female, not sure on the last one. I am useless at sexing spur thighs, which I presume they are. So watch as my sexing is completely thrown out the window by someone in the know.
Fun to have a go though. I'm trying to get better.
They're lovely little ones, CB.

Last one looks female.
Graecas can be hard to sex.

I didn't realise that ON I thought they were easier ! I thought last one was female too and she is markedly bigger. Just they are going to be adopted next week and I wanted to make sure I tried to place them together as best I can. Last one likes Elenor so I may keep her. Thank-you everyone so far !
