    I have a bantam BR who has seemed to split the difference on sex characteristics. I think she is more black than white, but I've seem some cockerals that look that way to me as well. She had a smallish head spot, distinct in front, fuzzy in back. She had dark wash on her legs, but not as dark as some others.

    Other characteristics: Her feet have always been too big for her and she trips over them. Her neck is super long.

    Here she is currently (week 7+)

    That is such a releif (of course I realize I posted the most girlie pics). I told myself early on she was a boy so I wouldn't be dissapointed. She was my only BR of 5 to survive. I thought I was vigilant cleaning their poopy butts, but they didn't make it. I suppose the shipping might have been too stressfull on those little bantams and poopy butt was just 1 symptom.

    Any way of the 5 EE's, only 1 looks to be girl. The others have red combs. It would really stink to end up with just 1 girl. I probably have had to give her away and start over.
