How to tell the girls from the boys??  Well, these littleluns will be very tricky… You can have a guess from behaviour – the boys will be more interested in you and more adventurous, and the girls will be quick to run and cower.  Try waving something above the flock as see who looks alert and maybe jumps up at it… they could well be your boys.
