Based on behaviour i'll have a go with 2 males 3 females....

But I still have doubts about the colors of the males. Some say wheated one's but they look like porcelain one's

I wouldn't base your decisions on behaviour, females charge and front up at each other too ! :grin:

And the answer is 3 boys,2 girls. My friend had 5 boys, 1 girl, so she gave the girl to me.

I'll try to post some new pic's soon.
