Is my Rhode Island Red, who I've named Ruby, actually a Rudy?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all of you chicken experts out there!!!  I have a 12 week old "bonus" chick who I've come to believe is a Rhode Island Red and who I believed was a hen.  Until this curly tail feather popped up within the last week.  Her comb is still small and both comb and wattles are still yellow, but I thought the tail feather looked suspiciously roo-ish in nature.  What do you think????  Just a fancy tail feather on a pretty pullet?  Or is my favorite girl really a boy?

Despite the aberrant tail feather, Ruby still looks like a girl. :o)

phew, @Michael OShay I'm so glad!  I did not want my favorite chicken to meet the chopping block!

This is such a relief @drumstick diva!  Thank you (and @Michael OShay) for taking the time to reassure me about my Ruby!
