    ok wait a minute-under closer inspection I thought the tail was behind the white bird behind him making the tail appear much larger--Sorry home with a bad head cold and this is affecting my vision and thoughts processes. I see it clearer--how old are these guys?

    How old are the birds? I personally think it is a pullet. There are no shiny hackles or saddle feathers at this point.

    Quote:At 25 weeks I would say pullet too-Im bad at birds I dont typically have but I do have birds that look like that RIR?? and I am a good sexer-at those-sorry for the confusion-it looked like an optical ellusion at first!
