    Oooo, porcelain sounds pretty! How does one get porcelain? I mean, what colors are used to make it?

    Agree with porcelain roo. Love the last picture of him. He is ready to back himself up aginst anything. That is a winner.

    I'm fairly sure it's a hen actually.

    It is a confusing one, as the poof isn't as large as one would expect for a hen, but there are no streamers and no evidence of wattles or redness, when if it was a roo with such limited bearding, I would expect to see some. I'm going to agree w/ Danischi.

    Lovely coloring!

    I was thinking pullet, too. Especially looking at the shape of the crest in the 3rd picture. I am not an expert though and the bird looks very young to me so possibly it just hasn;t grown any streamers yet [​IMG] He/She is very pretty.

    I'm not laying any bets one way or t'other on gender, but I do agree with porcelain [​IMG]
