    This is Chloe. We know she is a hen, as we ate her brothers. They had WAY bigger combs than Chloe, but other than that, they were identical. We got them as chicks in April and they have grown way faster than my other birds, keeping up with my dominiques, but not my Cornish X'x. She may be a mutt, but she is SO funny I don't care. She is very gentle with the other birds, and waddles around being goofy. I am looking forward to her eggs, aas I figure the proportionately they shoudl weigh about 2 pounds each. Any guesses as to breed?

    Well, let's just say that if her comb size and mannerisms versus the other two that were bought with her and raised with her are ANY indication, Chloe should be a she. Now, more surprising things have happened in my world, but the other two had combs fully twice as high and thick, and were far more aggressive. If they hadn't been sent to freezer camp, I would take pics of them as well. Either way, I was more curioous about breed than gender. If I get eggs great. If not, she is a he, and will go to freezer camp as well. Thanks!!
