    Not sure of breed, but most of the time the packing peanuts are males

    Female Red SL. (gold comet, cinnamon queen, etc). A wonderful egg-laying hybrid, you're lucky to have gotten a girl packing peanut.

    Quote:The entire purpose of Red SLs is that they can be easily gender IDed at birth. Females are caramel in color and have cute little brown racing stripes. Males are yellow and most times lack any stripes. They always feather their primaries white. The gold feathers come a little later.

    Quote:It's kind of hard for me to speculate on what you read, but I can link a picture that visually describes what I'm talking about: http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll228/7crazyclays/DSC01920.jpg In the above picture, the majority of chicks are the caramel brown females(with stripes). There is one male. He is at the top right. Light yellow, no marks.
