    Someone told me this was a cinnamon hen but its feathers are coming in and it’s starting to get a grey breast. Is that normal for a cinnamon hen or does it mean it’s a cinnamon male. Here’s a bad picture, it still has its baby feathers in the center but you can see the grey feathers filling in on the chest.

    A male would start to get blue and have reddish color vent feathers

    It looks like it has dark red/burgundy feathers around its vent, so I guess that means it’s a male, I’ve never seen a male colored like this before. Here’s some more photos.

    A gross angle I know, but you can kind of see the red feathers around the vent. (I think I’m looking at the right feathers, someone correct me if I’m wrong please)
