    Everyone guessed hen before, still think the same? Both have a habit of chest bumping all the chicks, but I think my other hen does it some, too. Also not sure if I'm looking too hard for pointy saddle feathers.

    And any opinions on this "guy". Got his comb really fast, but his feathers are so hairy, and no crowing. Just some fat feet. He's very meek, so it's just throwing us off.

    Your EE is a girl. I have a blue Americauna just like her who is brooding chicks right now. Your red chick is a boy. I see the dark feathers coming in.

    In this picture you can see the pointed dark shiny feathers coming in. If you spread the feathers apart on his back, you should see a lot.

    I agree with the above. The blue bird is a pullet, the red a cockerel.

    Ok, I see what you guys mean on the red. xD I've only had RSL girls til now, so trying to spot the roo in these straight runs has drove me crazy. (Especially since our RSL eggs have the fertilized bullseye, and have had that we believe all along. No saddle feathers, 5 "girls" 5 eggs a day. Only lately did we put the little ones/boys in.)

    Both of the blacks are really messed up noisy little chickies. We've got one RSL that is determined to pull their feathers.

    And yep, on the barred. That is our Chicken Boo, and we love him. Was just so hoping not to have two roos.

    Thanks!
