    I have a 3 month old mixed flock and I am not sure about the gender of the Silver Wyandotte or the EE. Could anyone shed some light on this for me? The SW was used to be aggressive, but has mellowed out. It is significantly larger than the other chickens and some of the tail feathers have a green sheen. Thank you![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
