    Sorry you can't see her legs at all confirmation



    They're both the same age, they were 16wks on the 15th. Color wise they're the same. I have heard some noises from it that I haven't heard from anyone else.

    Looks like she's about to be ready to lay. Don't see any hackles or sickles.

    I agree also, looks like a hen. No hackle/sickle feathers and that tail is nice and blunt with a downward turn. At least she looks an awful lot like my BR hens.
