    Can determine by the comb, saddle feathers (for roos), wattles, reddnes of them, feet, etc.

    My vote is for comb and wattles. My JG hen got super manly tail feathers early on, so much so that I got all roo votes when I posted pics of them! JG hens are also super shiny, so you can't go by that. Comb and wattles all the way!
