    Auguat is now 145 days old. 21 weeks old 4 months 23 days to be exact.
    I have gone back and forth and gotten several strong opinions for why she is a he or he is a she.

    August clucks puxks and purrs
    August honks loudly like a goose.
    August bellows out a creeky scratchy elevating squack.

    August only has 4 toes.
    August has feathered feet.
    Auagust has a tiny pink comb.

    Auugust hatched super tiny with a penquin looking pattern.
    The first feathering produced a solid black bird with a small dot of white on the chest. Eventually there was a bit if a molt and the white was gone and coppery feathers started appearing around the neck and face.
    Then I noticed a green sheen to some torso feathers.
    August's under fluff is extremely soft and fluffy and theres a lot of it. These feathers are more of a gray black ash color.
    Eyes are a sort of dark golden orange
    There is a lovely beard/fluff on the cheeks.
    Tail feathers keep changing.
    Appear mostly rounded but prior to them falling out there seemed to be a curving happening on top.
    Broody hen was a salmon Faverolle,who may or may not have been the hen who laid the egg.
    August's legs are a grayish tint.
    I have not seen evidence of spur buds

    I have seen no eggs
    I have heard no crows.
    Potential breed based on whats in the ranch and was was recently on the ranch.
    RIR Wyandotte,Silkie,Faverolle, Leghorn.
    Several mixed with a blend of the above.

    So with all that info and the photos Iv attached
    Lets see what round 4 of this guessing game brings about :)
    What breed mix and gender is August?

    I agree, August is definitely a pullet. Lovely looking girl, too. She reminds me that she could be an Olive Egger...like one parent was an Ameraucana, and the other was a Black Copper Marans. :D You may just get green eggs from her. I hope she lays soon!
