On the left, we have Florence, on the right Shirley. At least we hope that's who they are.
There's every possibility they're Horace and Arthur.
They're about six weeks old now, just starting to grow combs and rather smart adult feathers. When they start laying eggs or upsetting the neighbours at an ungodly hour, we'll know whether they're male or female. Our expert advice is that Florence might be a Plymouth Rock, Shirley is a mystery.
