    I am afraid my Brabanter pullet is turning out to be a cock. I am basing this primarly on the longer tail feathers and lengthening cape feathers.

    Attached is a picture - opinions appreciated.

    With those long saddle feathers I am afraid I have to go with 100% roo [​IMG] . He is handsome even if he is the wrong gender!

    Thanks to all for your opinions. I was afraid of that. Oh well, time to find a good home for "Becky"
