    Hi Everyone,

    I am hoping you can help me with gender. I've read the Ameracauna/EE thread but I still need a second, third, fourth opinion.

    I have two that look just like this. Identical, it's even hard to tell them apart:

    Here is the other one: He/She is smaller, not as well formed of a tail yet and has redness on his 3 row pea comb

    Thank you so much,

    X3 Males typically get the black hackle feathers whereas females of that color variety are usually more brown
