    Hoping there is someone familiar with 55 Flowery Hens. We bought CutiePie because the breeder said SHE was definitely a hen. She is now 6 ½ weeks and has always acted like a boy. Here are some of her pictures. Hoping someone can assure me that she is still a she? We already have a rooster in training.

    Weeks 1 thru 6

    I'm curious why she told you hen? Everything I can find says they're autosexing and blonde down the back is male.

    55 Flowery is supposed to be an autosex breed. She said the roosters are all white and have a white head at hatch.

    I even sent here some of the above pics and my concerns (a week or so ago) and she still stands by CutiePie being a girl and sent me a pic of her hens with huge combs and waddles.

    I don't know what to do if she is a boy! We had this all planned and got rid of all but one of our original flock! We bought auto sexing breeds to be 'sure'. We bought ONE boy for what will in the end be our 7 hens. BlueMan is a Crested Cream Legbar and he is much smaller than ALL the other littles, but our little man - with the blue egg genes.

    This is BlueMan

    I'm sorry, I have to agree. This is a cockerel. I'm not sure if your breeder is experienced with this breed.
