    I think you may be right about it being an EE/BO mix. I also think it is a hen. I don't see any saddle feathers and the comb/wattles look kind of small for a roo. Our EE have those crazy looking tail feathers too. Anybody else care to take a guess?

    I agree, looks like a BO mix...and definitely looks like a hen.
